UHV School of Nursing receives $10,000 from the Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation of Sugar Land
Press Release

November, 2008

The Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation of Sugar Land recently awarded The University of Houston-Victoria School of Nursing a $10,000 grant to help students study with the best lab equipment available.

“The generosity of this foundation will benefit everyone who lives in the Fort Bend area by increasing the knowledge and skills of the nurses who will care for all of us at some point in our lives,” said Kathryn Tart, founding dean of the UHV School of Nursing.

The lab equipment will be installed in the new academic building presently under construction at the southwest corner of U.S. Highway 59 and University Boulevard. UHV will share the facility with Wharton County Junior College.

“Good laboratory facilities are essential in any sort of allied health education,” Tart said. “This gift from the Parks Foundation will help ensure the facilities for our Sugar Land nursing students will be nothing short of state-of-the-art.”

The new equipment includes a defibrillator, ventilator, vital signs monitor, portable electrocardiogram and other tools nursing students will use in their professional careers.

The UHV School of Nursing offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs at the University of Houston System at Sugar Land and the main Victoria campus.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, is an upper-level institution that offers undergraduate and graduate students more than 30 degree programs and concentrations in the Schools of Arts & Sciences, Business, Nursing, and Education. A faculty of experts at UHV offers students individual attention to help them succeed, whether learning in a classroom or online. UHV is defined more as a delivery system than as a location, as the university extends instruction, learning support, student services and community outreach to any area. Although it serves primarily commuting students from Victoria and surrounding counties, UHV also offers degree programs, in collaboration with other UH System institutions, at two off-campus centers in Fort Bend County and offers courses at a number of off-campus sites in the region. Since its founding in 1973, outreach, community partnerships and collaboration have characterized UHV’s history and mission.
