Las Cruces, NM (NMSU) — The New Mexico State University College of Health and Social Services' School of Nursing is receiving a $125,000 gift from Memorial Medical Center.
The Memorial Medical Center Endowed Faculty Development Fund, which spans five years, will create a 3-D wall featuring a visual and audio history of the NMSU School of Nursing on the first floor of the health and social services building with $15,000 from the contribution. The college is partnering with the art department to design and fabricate the wall. The college plans to unveil the display in the spring.
The remainder of the donation will go towards faculty development for assistance with teaching, research, scholarship or creative activities. NMSU is receiving $25,000 per year.
