Lane provides nursing and health care education to an ethnically and economically diverse student body, and trains local residents for well-paying jobs in an area hard-hit by the timber industry’s decline. The construction of a LEED-rated Health and Wellness Educational Center, funded in part by this challenge grant, supports increased nursing and health care enrollment.
