With the advent of a new building in 2016, College of Nursing faculty, staff and students will enjoy the addition of a dedicated research and scholarly center. Faculty and staff hope the passion for scholarship of their new dean, Leslie Neal-Boylan, will be contagious in helping the CON move forward in its quest for new scholarly territories. Meanwhile, in 2014, the CON faculty and instructional staff continued to pursue professional growth opportunities.
