The June Awrey Lecture

The June Awrey Lecture, established in 2018 to coincide with the school of nursing's 25th anniversary, is held in recognition of the first and founding  director. Known for her tenacity, innovation and collegial leadership, the intention of the June Awrey Annual Lecture is to pay tribute to the school’s founder and to attract presentations by leading critical thinkers in nursing, health and health care.  The lecture aspires to engage students, faculty, academic and practice partners, alumni and others in ground-breaking ideas that will stimulate excellence in practice, policy, leadership, education, and research.
