Faculty Support

Endowed professorships support outstanding faculty and advance their work as educators, researchers, and clinicians. Endowed professorships attract and retain nationally recognized nurse scientists, educators, and clinicians. Endowments ensure that the nurse you will need in the future will be on hand, with the expertise to manage all aspects of care.

In 2007, UMSON Professor Barbara Resnick, PhD '96, RN, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP, was appointed to the Sonya Ziporkin Gershowitz Endowed Chair in Gerontology. Established through a gift from Sonya Ziporkin Gershowitz Goodman,  MS ’79, BSN ’73, the endowment funds a national expert in the field to conduct research and educate students in the increasingly important specialty of gerontology.

Gifts for faculty support enable UMSON to recruit and retain extraordinary teachers, thereby ensuring quality education for our students. Faculty engaging in research opportunities expands the School’s ability to create programs of excellence and to graduate students considered to be leaders in health care.
