Gowen Professorships Created

Worth Noting

The School of Nursing has expanded its programs in the community with health enhancement and preventive services in schools, businesses, and community centers as part of a Department of Health grant to the Community Nursing Center. The programs include Project Believe for flu vaccines, Well Aware Corporate Health Management Program to serve businesses, and a partnership with telemedicine company HomMed.

The legacy of two longtime supporters of the University has helped establish two new professorships in the College.

Helen (Bunny) Gowen and Fred Gowen bequeathed to the University $10.2 million, which will be used to fund academic initiatives and establish the professorships.

"Bunny and Fred Gowen were staunch supporters of the University for many, many decades," said President Jackson. "This bequest is the capstone of a lifetime of uncommonly generous support for our institution."

Fred Gowen '32, an inaugural member of the University's Trustee Council and longtime trustee, was executive director and chairman of the investment policy committee of the Mackay-Shields Financial Corporation at the time of his death in 1978. Helen Gowen continued to be involved in the College before her death in 1999.
