Newman University in Wichita, KS plays a major role in educating future physicians, nurses, certified registered nurse anesthetists, (CRNA) and several other medical professionals in a variety of other allied health fields.
To support these programs and all students, Newman has announced a new $30 million campaign to construct a new STEM building, renovations and upgrades to nursing facilities on campus and funding for scholarships and growth in university endowment.
The new building will be named the Bishop Gerber Science Center in honor of longtime university supporter and Bishop Emeritus of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita, Eugene J. Gerber.
The state-of-the-art facility will feature new cutting edge technology and equipment, more research areas and “smart” classrooms, and simulation labs, which are increasingly necessary to properly train clinical skills and to meet industry and accreditation standards.
“We are extremely happy to announce the Facing Forward campaign to the public, and excited at the prospect of the renovations and construction of new science and health sciences facilities,” Newman President Noreen M. Carrocci, Ph.D., said. “We’re taking bold steps with this campaign, but Newman has a history of Facing Forward to transform the future and shape our destiny.”
