WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The order of nuns who founded Newman University in Wichita has given $2.5 million to the university.

University officials announced the gift Tuesday from the Adorers of the Blood of Christ. University spokeswoman Kelly Snedden says the money will be used to fund science and health care initiatives, which includes a proposed new science building.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1cBxRn9 ) the order founded the university 80 years ago. It is the only university started by the order.

The Catholic school trains teachers, nurses, and graduates trained in technology, among other professionals. It has recently put a greater emphasis on science and health studies.

The money from the Adorers comes from the order's endowment and will be used over five years.
