Giving to the College

Why is my gift important to Bradley University’s College of Education and Health Sciences?

The College of Education and Health Sciences strives to remain at the forefront of higher learning by educating a new generation of counselors, educators, physical therapists, nurses, retail merchandisers, dieticians, and administrators. As we look to the future, we hope we can continue to offer our students a superb learning experience. Your gift can help us continue our tradition of excellence. We want to continue to develop better programs, such as our new doctorate in physical therapy and the new minor in leadership studies, and to provide our students with advanced technology integral to their education. We hope to build a greater future by preparing the next generation of leaders and experts in Education and Health Sciences. We'd love to hear from you!

Facilities renovations and expansions are top priorities within the College.

Westlake Hall Renovation and Expansion

In the summer of 2012 we returned home to a newly renovated and expanded Westlake Hall.  The outward appearance of the facility retains the traditional look, and the iconic clock tower watches over campus.  However, the inside now offers state-of-the-art amenities to support faculty and student research and classrooms.  Our renovated Westlake Hall has grown from 13,500 to 85,000 square feet.  Quite simply, it is spectacular!  Funds are still needed to support this project with naming opportunities for classrooms, offices, and student spaces.  A gift to Westlake Hall is a great way to honor or memorialize a special member of the faculty or someone close to you.

Other priorities…

Instructional Technology for Westlake Hall

Programmatic support for new initiatives, such as Hospitality Leadership

College of Education and Health Sciences Global Scholars Program

Nursing Department, including a soon to launch Doctor of Nursing Practice and laboratories
