The Fund to Support the new School of Nursing Building - The Next Era of Nursing Education at CSULB was ushered-in by the dedication of our new highly anticipated building in 2010. This state-of-the-art facility has expanded CSULB’s Nursing program to fulfill the critical need that exists in the nursing profession. Our alumni and friends can help the School of Nursing realize its mission through their private support. The Fund to Support the new School of Nursing Building seeks individual and corporate cash donations, pledges and deferred gifts (estate plans and bequests) for various naming opportunities, technology upgrades, furniture and equipment.

The Physical Therapy Faculty Practice Clinic – As of May 29, 2012, the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at California State University, Long Beach is underway. As part of advancing physical therapy education at CSULB, a Physical Therapy Faculty Practice is in construction and scheduled to be completed in August, 2012. The purpose of the Faculty Practice is twofold: 1) to provide effective physical therapy to the students, faculty and staff of CSULB and to the surrounding community and 2) to enhance the education of entry-level DPT students and community physical therapists. This will be achieved by offering evidence-based skilled physical therapy by licensed physical therapists participating in an orthopedic residency program. The Physical Therapy Excellence Fund enables the Department of Physical Therapy to pursue such endeavors as building the Physical Therapy Faculty Practice Clinic, student scholarships, and faculty research.
