COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The University of Missouri’s nursing school has received gifts totaling $3 million to go toward construction of a new building.
University leaders announced Friday that Michael and Millie Brown of Leawood, Kansas, pledged $2 million. Richard Miller of Pittsburg, Kansas, also pledged $1 million. The money will go toward the estimated $55 million needed for the new building for the Sinclair School of Nursing.
Millie Brown is a graduate of the school and Miller’s daughter earned a nursing degree there.
The new building would include larger classrooms, a nursing simulation center and a research center. The added space will allow the school to increase enrollment from 160 to 200 students.
