From the Dean

Bobbie Berkowitz, Dean, Columbia University School of Nursing

These are times of exceptional transformation and progress at Columbia University School of Nursing. For 125 years, Columbia Nursing has prepared students to excel as clinicians, researchers, and nurse leaders in a rapidly evolving healthcare system. 2017 marks this milestone anniversary year for the school. It is also the year we will open our new state-of the art building. The knowledge and skill required by an ever-changing, increasingly complex healthcare landscape makes it more crucial than ever to provide the optimal learning environment for our future nurse leaders. Columbia Nursing has always been a driving force that transforms nursing and education. We look forward to honoring and celebrating this legacy with our new building in this very special anniversary year.

To realize these goals, we must make a significant investment in our future, which would not be possible without the generosity of our donors. This is why we are embarking on a historic $25 million campaign to build a new home for our school. By making a donation, you can help make this happen.

I invite you to join me for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a new home for Columbia Nursing and invest in our talented students, outstanding faculty, and world-class programs.
