It’s a special reunion year for the UC College of Nursing
, which is celebrating the 125th anniversary of its founding. To commemorate this anniversary year, the college will also award 125 of its alumni and honorary alumni with Legacy Awards.
The awards will be presented at Alumni Weekend, April 10-11, 2015.
The UC College of Nursing Legacy Award was designed to honor and acknowledge graduates who have demonstrated leadership and/or philanthropy in practice, research, education and/or service in the community and in health care.
Selected honorees were nominated by their peers throughout fall 2014.
The inaugural Legacy Award was given to Beverly Malone, PhD, CEO of the National League for Nursing and UC College of Nursing alumna (BSN ’70, PhD ’82), in November at the college’s 125th anniversary celebration. Malone presented the keynote address at the celebration.
"Through these Legacy Awards, the UC College of Nursing celebrates 125 alumni who have contributed to our vision and have been leaders in establishing our legacy,” says Greer Glazer, PhD, dean, UC College of Nursing. "We’re thrilled to honor them as we celebrate all alumni and our college’s rich history.”
