We are pleased to announce the establishment of NUNM’s Fund for Excellence. This fund will provide a pool of immediately accessible resources to underwrite critical priorities and support initiatives that celebrate the values of NUNM. Your contribution to this fund will allow us to stay flexible with the changing landscape and ensure NUNM is a welcoming and inclusive community.
The following urgent needs necessitate prioritization this academic year:
- IT/Technology Infrastructure: This past spring, Aldrich Technology completed an assessment of our outdated IT infrastructure and technology, donating their time through our Corporate Giving Program. We have since hired Aldrich Technology to collaborate with our Information Technology Department on updates.
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI): The Board of Directors created a standing DEI committee to work in coordination with the Office of Equity and Inclusion, committing to a campus community that honors individuality, celebrates cultural differences, and fosters a sense of belonging for all.
- Innovation: NUNM faculty overcame recent challenges with tenacity and continue to look to the future as they lead curricular innovation efforts. Concurrently, academic administration is increasing faculty development and training opportunities. This will ensure lasting change toward equitable access and reduce student costs while meeting the increasing demand for technology-based education.
