BU's first endowed professorship

A gift of $1.9 million from Edward and Julianne (Miller) Breiner, who graduated from Bloomsburg University in 1977, establishes the university’s first endowed professorship in support of an exceptional teacher, mentor and leader.

The couple looked to the needs of BU when determining the focus of their most recent gift and established the professorship within the Department of Nursing, specifically in support of BU's Doctor of Nursing Practice. The Breiner Professorship of Nursing will create a new senior faculty position, with additional funding to be used for research, conferences, travel, software and equipment or other professional expenses.

“We talked with university officials about ways our gift could make BU a stronger university,” said Julie Breiner. “With the health profession, there is a potential to make a huge impact as far as healing and caring. Nursing really resonated with us.”
