University of Iowa gets $15M gift for school mental health center

 The University of Iowa College of Education has received a $15 million donation — the largest gift ever to the college — to support training and research in school mental health.

The Iowa Center for School Mental Health, founded last summer with $20 million in federal pandemic relief money, will be renamed the Scanlan Center for School Mental Health after the gift from the Chicago-based Scanlan Family Foundation.

The gift and renaming, which will be considered July 27 by the Iowa Board of Regents, will expand clinical support for school mental health in collaboration with the UI’s Belin-Blank Center.
