The George Washington University (GW) has found that faculty from the School of Nursing donate to the university at the highest rate of all schools at GW. Almost 100 percent of nursing faculty members give back to GW—more than any other school—according to Officials who spoke at a Faculty Senate meeting earlier this month.
Nursing faculty reported that they give back because they are dedicated to boosting the school’s resources and funds, which allow officials to proceed with renovations, including a recent renovation to the school’s lab spaces and updated training equipment. University spokesman Tim Pierce says many faculty members donate to the nursing school, including giving on an ongoing basis through payroll deduction. Pamela Jeffries, dean of the GW School of Nursing, has been a strong advocate for encouraging faculty to provide philanthropic support.
Pierce tells GWHatchet.com, “Faculty donors at GW Nursing support the school’s mission to train the next generation of nursing leaders and to improve patient care in local and global communities. Their giving reflects the strong affinity and commitment the faculty has for the school.”
Faculty donations go toward academic programs, partnerships, teaching resources, and research for the nursing schools. GW Nursing’s recently unveiled simulation lab space and student success center located in the nursing school’s flagship building are powerful examples of how philanthropic support can lead to better student and faculty resources.
