The grant aligns the missions of both organizations by fostering hope and opportunity for students in the healthcare arena, while honoring GHR co-founder and St. Catherine University alumna, Henrietta Schmoll Rauenhorst. The investment supports the ongoing expansion of the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health. In accepting the grant, St. Catherine University President Andrea Lee noted that “this generous gift inspires both gratitude and excitement in all of us at St. Catherine – gratitude for the expansive vision and generosity of the GHR Foundation and its founders, and excitement at the transformative impact this gift will have on the groundbreaking work of the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health.”
St. Catherine University will use the grant to develop new programs and fund technology and faculty as it addresses the critical and ever-changing needs in senior living, primary care and global health.
