“Empowering Nursing Excellence in Action”
SIUE School of Nursing - High Impact Campaign
FY18 and FY19 - Goal $125,000

Contributions to the High Impact Campaign support the continued growth, success and impact of the SIUE School of Nursing.  Alumni, clinical partners, faculty and friends make an important difference in the advancement of our School, academic programs, and ultimately on the quality of nursing care provided in our region, state and nation.   The following funding priorities reflect important and emerging needs of the School.

1. DEAN'S LEADERSHIP SOCIETY (Fund # 3608) ($20,000/Goal)
Gifts to the Dean’s Leadership Society help launch the following strategic initiatives and position the SIUE School of Nursing, our students and alumni at the forefront of nursing excellence:

  • Global Education and Service Learning Experiences                                                               

Gifts support the cost of travel and other related expenses for nursing students to participate in international university exchange programs, and medical mission trips to developing communities around the globe.

  • Simulated Learning Center for Health Sciences (SLCHS)                                              

Gifts support SLCHS computer, equipment and technology enhancements that deliver state-of-the-art simulated patient care experiences that distinguish our students of nursing. 

  • SIUE WE CARE Clinic                                                                                                           

Gifts support this innovative nurse-managed clinic that delivers comprehensive patient-centered care to diverse residents living in medically and economically underserved communities in the Metro-east area.

The second bi-annual “Honoring the Past Empowering the Future” all alumni reunion will be held on October 27, 2018, at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium located in St. Louis’s Forest Park.  Sponsorships at the $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000 level are sought to underwrite this premiere event.  Over 300 alumni, faculty and friend guests are expected to attend.  Classes of ’67/’68, ‘77/’78, ‘87/’88, ’97/’98 and ‘07/08 be reunited and honored.      

3. SCHOLARSHIPS (Fund #7180/SON Annual Scholarship Fund - other funds available online) ($40,000/Goal)
In these challenging times, annually funded and endowed scholarships help attract and retain the region’s most talented, diverse and deserving students.  The School seeks to significantly increase the number of annual and endowed scholarships available.  Scholarships may be named by the donor to honor a  person or purpose important to donors, and student selection criteria can be chosen to reflect donor values.

4. CRNA MATCHING-GIFT CHALLENGE -  CLEMENT SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT (Fund # 8139) ($10,000/Goal)
As the CRNA program grows, the need for scholarships for students increases.  Dr. Jackie Clement has generously stepped forward to ask CRNA alumni to “pay-it-forward” by offering to match all gifts made to the Clement Scholarship Endowment Fund on a “$1 to $1” basis, up to a total of $5,000 per year.

5. SCHOOL OF NURSING’s GENERAL DEVELOPMENT NEEDS (Fund #3601) ($20,000/Goal)
