The week of March 14 started on a high note when Dean Linda McCauley called an impromptu gathering in the nursing school lobby at noon. Faculty, staff, and students cheered and applauded when she announced that the school had surpassed its $20 million fund-raising goal for Campaign Emory. What’s more, the school met its goal two years ahead of schedule and was the first school to reach its goal.
“Here’s to the very best students, staff, faculty, and alumni in the world,” said McCauley as she led a Coca-Cola toast to celebrate the school’s historical accomplishment.
Since Campaign Emory began in 2005, the nursing school has raised more than $20.6 million for student scholarships, faculty research, service-learning projects, and academic programming. More than 3,000 individuals, corporations, and foundations have supported the campaign.
