Priority Needs

Approximately 75 percent of our students rely on financial support to pay for their educations. Scholarship funds help us attract the best and brightest students, allowing them to focus on their studies instead of worrying about how they're going to pay for the next semester's tuition.

Endowed chairs
Endowed chairs enable us to attract and retain world-renowned educators and researchers to serve on faculty.

College of Health Professions Annual Giving Program
The Annual Giving Program supports a wide range of resources designed to support enhanced learning, including:

  • Student financial aid
  • Equipment and teaching materials
  • Classroom and laboratory renovations
  • Expanded educational opportunities for students and alumni
  • Student travel and student research

Because the program supports an "unrestricted" fund, it enables the college to meet needs as they arise - helping a student to attend a seminar, replacing broken equipment, or providing emergency financial aid. It is this flexibility and responsiveness to student needs that makes the College of Health Professions education a truly unique and exceptional one.
