In 2016, the William and Sue Gross Family Foundation donated $40 million to establish a school of nursing, which was formally approved in 2017, making it the newest nursing school in the prestigious University of California system. In early 2017, the University of California, Irvine received the largest gift in its history, a $200 million donation from Susan and Henry Samueli to name the first of its kind Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences, which will position UCI as a new leader in population health, patient care, education and research. The school of nursing will be one of four academic units in the College of Health Sciences, including the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy and Population Health, creating many opportunities for interdisciplinary research.
