|The School of Allied Health Sciences
prepares individuals to become effective and compassionate health practitioners, researchers, and teachers who will competently serve the health needs of Southern Nevada.
As part of the university's comprehensive campaign, the School of Allied Health Sciences has identified the following key fundraising priorities:
Health sciences building
This new state-of-the-art building will have a center core containing classrooms, including a large computer lab; an advising center; and student lounges to be shared among the three schools in the Division of Health Sciences: health and human sciences, nursing, and public health.
Support for the school's advising program provides high-quality academic and personal advising to students as advisors assist students with class scheduling, academic or career goals, and degree information.
Equipment, software, and database acquisition and replacement
The School of Health and Human Sciences maintains rich academic resources for faculty and student research. Private support for these educational materials, as well as current technological tools, will help students and faculty.
Faculty opportunity and development funds
Support for faculty research; teaching; and curriculum, professional, and educational development directly affects the diversity and quality of teaching our students receive, both inside and outside the classroom. This program also provides support to help the division recruit and retain outstanding health and human sciences faculty for programs in which few qualified candidates are available nationally.
Graduate student fellowships
Private support will fund graduate tuition, research costs, or similar items in the graduate program and are essential to attract health care practitioners and scholars back to the classroom for advanced education. These stipends may be combined with graduate assistant positions to enable students to focus on their studies rather than pursue outside employment.
Undergraduate student support
These funds provide support to allow students opportunities to excel academically, including merit-based scholarships, undergraduate assistantships, support for student organizations and events, and international exchange programs.
"Invent the Future"
Major support for the School of Allied Health Sciences will create endless opportunities for tomorrow's health care professionals. In honor of a significant gift, a donor may name the School of Health and Human Sciences, or endowed faculty chairs, professorships, or scholarships.
