Jacksonville (Fla.) University announced the College of Health Sciences has been named the Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences in honor of the largest single gift in its history and in gratitude for Brooks Rehabilitation’s ongoing support, totaling more than $4 million.
A lead portion of the University’s ongoing $120 million ASPIRE 2020 campaign, the investment by Brooks Rehabilitation strengthens the university’s cooperative relationship with Brooks, according to a news release. It also reinforces a joint commitment to offer the highest-quality healthcare education and practice possible.
“Brooks Rehabilitation is a world-class partner,” JU President Tim Cost said in the release. “Together with our good friends at Brooks, the university will accelerate its recruitment of the very best students, faculty and researchers.”
The newly donated and committed funds from Brooks will help Jacksonville University fulfill its 81-year academic promise to invest in its students and the community that has sustained it, according to the release.
“Brooks is proud to support JU in its commitment to provide exceptional educational programming for our future healthcare practitioners,” Doug Baer, CEO of Brooks Rehabilitation, said in the release. “JU is being aggressive and proactive to elevate its existing programs and identify areas of unmet need.”
