Texas Christian University
Fort Worth, TX
The college hopes to eventually offer the leadership activity to all its students to help meet its broader TCU mission to develop ethical leaders.
Round 1: 2008 – 2009
NCIN enabled Texas Christian University’s Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences to award scholarships to applicants from groups underrepresented in nursing. It then leveraged new revenue generated by higher student enrollments to increase the number of nursing school faculty, hire an academic specialist, provide additional funds for financial aid and a learning lab, and contribute $20,000 to its operating budget. A small grant enabled the college to coordinate a leadership and development activity for NCIN scholars, which covered assessing personality styles and demonstrating understanding of select leadership theories and best practices.
