MILWAUKEE — Alverno College has wrapped up a successful
fundraising campaign by raising nearly $33 million for
an expansion and renovation project.
According to an announcement from the school Wednesday,
Alverno raised $32,793,000, a significant amount more
than its original capital campaign goal of $30 million
in December. Ground was broken March 2014 on the site
where a new classroom building, a state-of-the-art
nursing simulation center for the JoAnn McGrath School
of Nursing and the creation of a new, larger student
commons to enhance the student experience will be built.
“This is an investment in the city of Milwaukee as well
as an investment in Alverno,” said Mary J. Meehan,
Ph.D., president of Alverno College, in a statement.
“Our alums are leaders in business, health care and
education, and since 80 percent of our graduates live
and work in Wisconsin, we truly are having an impact
