TWU Receives $155,000 Gift From Memorial Hermann Healthcare

11/10/03


HOUSTON — A $155,000 gift from Memorial Hermann Healthcare System to the Texas Woman’s University-Houston Center will help TWU address the state’s nursing shortage and support health science faculty development programs.

“One of the critical concerns in addressing the state’s nursing shortage is having enough instructors to teach nursing students,” said TWU Chancellor Dr. Ann Stuart. “Memorial Hermann’s generosity will help TWU attract and retain nursing and other allied health program instructors.”

The funding will be provided in 2003 and 2004 and is designated to support faculty development, recruitment and retention. Approximately 83 percent of the funding is earmarked for the College of Nursing and the balance is designated for the College of Health Sciences, which offers programs in health care administration, physical therapy, occupational therapy and nutrition.
