October 08, 2009

Baker College of Cadillac has received a $90,000 Major Impact Grant from the Jewell Education Fund (JEF). The annual grant is awarded for projects that will significantly improve the quality of education on a Baker College campus.

“We are indeed very grateful and pleased to receive this grant,” said Robert Van Dellen, Ph.D., Baker College of Cadillac president. “This is very exciting news, as it will help to fund a worthwhile health care project.”

Baker College of Cadillac will use the grant to construct a high-fidelity simulation center on campus for health care training. New state-of-the-art simulation equipment will be used as a training tool for many of the Baker heath care programs, including nursing, EMS and surgical technology. In addition, area clinics and hospitals will be invited to the simulation center for continuing training programs. Total cost of the project is $163,000.

This is the second JEF grant awarded to the Baker’s Cadillac campus. The first one was used for an on-going adjunct mentoring program.
