To hold true to our heritage and meet the needs of our growing campus community, A&M-Commerce will construct a new Nursing and Health Sciences Building in this centennial year. The facility will house the Department of Nursing, the Department of Health and Human Performance, and the Biomedical Institute for Regenerative Research. It also will provide needed educational and research space for other departments. With new specialized equipment and a simulation hospital, faculty members and students will be able to conduct advanced research, further contributing to the prestige of this university. With a tradition of using our resources for the benefit of the community, A&M-Commerce will use this new state-of-the-art building as a springboard for developing partnerships with local and regional health care providers, school systems, and organizations. We intend to address the demand for quality health care professionals and contribute to nursing and health science research in Northeast Texas.
As the opening date for this building draws near, I give my sincerest thanks to all of you who have made this university’s progress possible through your loyalty and involvement. With your continued support, the Nursing and Health Sciences Building will help A&M-Commerce advance for another 100 years, and more.
Ray M. Keck, Ph.D. President
With the majority of our nursing and health science students remaining in Northeast Texas after graduating, A&M-Commerce is perfectly poised to help address the needs of the region’s aging, rural, and underserved communities. Each day, our faculty members improve the quality of life through research and by educating and preparing students to become successful health care professionals.
Our mission to promote health in the region accelerated in 2015, when the Texas Legislature provided funding to help construct a new Nursing and Health Sciences Building, complete with equipment and resources necessary for a modern, state-of-the-art educational facility.
Once constructed, the building will provide laboratories for research and house the nursing, body mechanics, nutrition and wellness, and kinesiology programs.
As such, it will function as a central place for collaboration across disciplines on important research subjects, including prevention and clinical care. In this exciting environment, A&M-Commerce students will gain the knowledge and skills they need to fill essential positions in health care, achieving our mission to make a positive, lasting difference in the lives of our local residents and underserved rural neighbors.
We ask that you further this momentum by partnering with us to build a better future.
We provide thorough instruction on quality patient care and outstanding care coordination.
Our students learn how to help prevent chronic disease, implement initiatives to improve health, and build teams to advocate for the well-being of children and older adults in the community.
While researching ways to cure and reverse damage from disease, our faculty members train students to become skilled and informed clinicians.
We need your support. Funds raised for the new Nursing and Health Sciences Building will empower A&M-Commerce to continue improving health care for generations of Northeast Texans. Your gift will make a difference in this capital project and the programs it houses.
In return for your financial support, you may take comfort and satisfaction in knowing that your gift is meaningful and your generosity of benefit to Texans and many other people throughout the world. Please join individuals, families, physicians, corporations, foundations, and the people of our region with your own commitment to this beautiful facility.
Students and our community members in Northeast Texas deserve the best in health care. A&M-Commerce needs your contribution to help achieve our goal of quality health care in the region. Philanthropy provides the resources not only for brick and mortar, but also for recruitment, retention, and education of a new generation of health care professionals and leaders.
There is no greater way to give than by supporting our community of family, friends, and neighbors. We cannot fulfill this important commitment alone. We encourage you to join us in this meaningful project and help ensure that we provide the finest available education to our nursing and health science students from across the country. Together we can invest in a healthy future for generations to come.
