What your gifts mean to students
“Thank you for investing in us and making this possible.” First-year professional pharmacy student Sabrina Wolfe represented all students in health professions when she spoke this spring at the ceremonial groundbreaking for a privately funded 74,000 square foot addition to Sudro Hall.
A native of Carrington, North Dakota, Wolfe and her classmates help define the future of health professions. As they pursue their careers in pharmacy, nursing, allied sciences and public health, the new addition will provide students with expanded simulation and skills labs, state-of-the-art technology, collaborative spaces, a new Concept Pharmacy, and other tools integral to health professions.
“It will give a much needed technological and facility update that provides more of a team-based care setting, which is in high demand,” said Wolfe of the project. “This teaches us to see a care plan from a different point of view and fosters critical thinking.”
The Sudro Hall Addition will include the North Dakota Pharmacists Association Concept Pharmacy. Twice the size of the current concept pharmacy, it is made possible through a generous donation for naming rights from the NDPhA to the college.
“It is humbling to see so many of our Association members from across the state rally together to make this available for pharmacy students,” said Mike Schwab, executive vice president of the North Dakota Pharmacists Association.
"We are grateful for the tremendous support from donors, alumni, corporate partners, and friends who are making this privately funded building addition possible," said Charles Peterson, dean of the College of Health Professions.
The six-story addition will accommodate collaborative hands-on learning, expand the college’s research capabilities pending additional funding, and help meet the region’s growing need for health care professionals. The North Dakota Legislature and State Board of Higher Education authorized NDSU to develop the privately funded project at an estimated cost of up to $28 million.
Once the expansion project is completed, all of the college’s programs will be at one location and include newly designed space for students to learn and work within interdisciplinary teams, just as they will in hospitals, clinics and other health care settings.
If you’d like to advance the future of pharmacy, nursing, allied sciences and public health, there are more opportunities to participate in this project.
“To recognize the importance of health professions and those involved in it, there are a range of naming opportunities throughout the new 74,000 square foot addition to Sudro Hall,” according to Jason Eagle, senior director of development for the College of Health Professions.
Naming opportunities include sponsorship of collaborative and community spaces, rooms, study areas, research laboratories and more.
There are options to have permanent recognition in the new building, to support groundbreaking research, and to support students through scholarships. Contact Jason Eagle at 701-231-5873 or Jason.Eagle@ndsualumni.com to learn more.
