With their new $4 million gift, Rob ’84 and Donna ’85, ’91 Manning have now given nearly $10 million to the university over the past eight years. The money will endow systemwide $10,000 Teaching Excellence Awards and support strategic priorities in the School of Nursing and Manning Business School.
Rob and Donna Manning have given their alma mater a total of $10 million, earning Robert Manning the recognition of having the business school named after him. Their latest contribution came in the form of $4 million to be used for state-of-the-art facilities for the nursing and business programs, as well as a fund to reward exemplary UMass professors.
Many of the 50 nursing students who have graduated from the Bring Diversity Nursing program are working in Lowell and Lawrence hospitals and clinics delivering culturally competent care.
Nursing students participating in the Co-op Scholars program had the chance to work one-on-one with patients and research medical technology.
More than 100 rising sophomores participated in the Co-op Scholar Program this summer, working in labs, conducting research and getting professional experience.
