Dean's Letter

Dear College of Health Professions Donor,

The faculty and students of the college are committed to creating and participating in educational experiences that are challenging, clinically relevant, and community-based. The college is also committed to providing opportunities for students and faculty to become engaged in their professional communities and through this participation develop leadership skills that will impact the quality of educational and health care services on a global scale.

These activities include presenting at regional, national and international professional meetings, participating in international clinical and service opportunities, developing interdisciplinary scholarship and instruction, and expanding simulation and other technologies into our classes and labs.

Through your support, the faculty, students, and alumni of our college will continue to live out our mission of contributing to a better world, learning through involvement and leading by example.

Please consider making a gift to the College of Health Professions to support these goals.

Finally, I encourage alumni and friends to check with their employers to see if their gift qualifies for a match. These matching gift programs are a wonderful opportunity to have your contribution doubled or even tripled in some cases. And best of all, you get recognized in the Annual Donor Report for the combined total of your gift and matching gift.
