Gift of $1M Honors Retiring UW Dean, Supports Statewide Mental Health Three students walking in front of college campus building.

A $1 million gift to the University of Wyoming Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing by longtime supporter the McMurry Foundation aims to boost the delivery of psychiatric mental health nursing and integrated care in Wyoming through UW’s undergraduate and graduate programs.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to both honor Mary Burman and support Wyomingites’ access to mental health education and services,” says Susie McMurry, of the McMurry Foundation. “I have a deep fondness and admiration for Mary. She is a true friend and mentor.”

The gift creates the McMurry Foundation Fund in Mental Health and Integrated Care in Honor of Mary Burman, which benefits the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing. The fund honors Burman, dean of the School of Nursing from 2008-2019 and director of the Division of Social Work since 2016.

Burman’s dedicated contributions and innovations have advanced the practice of nursing and health care in Wyoming and the profession. She has been at the center of revolutionizing the state’s nursing education through the ReNEW program, which creates a statewide nursing curriculum that makes it easier for associate-level nurses to earn bachelor’s degrees and beyond.
