The Michigan State University (MSU) College of Nursing is nearing its $14.5 million fundraising goal for a three story, 45,000 square foot addition.
"Additional space is needed to accommodate the existing enrollment growth of the college," says Monique Dozier, director of Development and External Relations for the College of Nursing. "The college is currently housed in three buildings on MSU's campus."
The addition will hopefully enable the college to bring all faculty, staff and nursing students together. The addition will connect to the existing nursing facilities located in the life sciences building.
"This will be a prominent addition in the health sciences corridor on campus," she says.
Dozier says it will be six to nine months before the College of Nursing is ready to move to the construction phase of the addition.
The College of Nursing has raised $14.5 million for the $16 million project. In order to continue raising funds for the development, the College of Nursing will host its "60 for Sixty Challenge" through June 2010. For more information about the challenge, click here.
