Year in review 2012–13
Dear Connell School community,
The Connell School of Nursing had a fabulous 2012–13 academic year. Alumni, faculty, staff, and students were honored with awards, grants, and leadership positions, and nine of our community members were inducted into the American Academy of Nursing.
Four foundations gave the Connell School a total of more than $1.8 million to support financial aid for master’s students, expand the program that welcomes nursing students from communities underrepresented in our field, and bolster international service and learning opportunities.
The junior class made significant contributions to our outreach around the world: Nearly two of every five members of the Class of 2014 studied for a semester abroad in locations ranging from Chile and the Philippines to England and South Africa.
I’m thrilled to share these achievements—and more—with you and I look forward to another year of growth and exciting possibilities.
