EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - McLaren Greater Lansing has made a $1.5 million gift to Michigan State University to establish the College of Nursing’s first endowed chair position.

The East Lansing school said Monday that the donation to help create the Endowed Chair for Behavioral Mental Health Nursing Education is the second largest gift ever given to the nursing college.

McLaren has been an active participant in the “Healthy! Capital Counties” collaborative to conduct a community health needs assessment, which measures and prioritizes the region’s health care needs. Mental health care was identified as one of the area’s top priorities.

The university notes that endowed chair and professorship positions provide scholars with stable support to actively engage in leading-edge work.
