Girls in the Game

Girls in the Game

A group of highly-motivated, determined students from Girls in the Game’s Teen Leadership Institute visited Adtalem’s Chicago campus for a workshop focused on leadership, self-esteem and career development.

 

“Adtalem has helped Girls in the Game achieve its mission of helping every girl find her voice, discover her strength and lead with confidence through fun and active sports, health and leadership programs. Adtalem’s support of our Teen Programs has especially increased girls’ awareness of their future options when looking at colleges and potential career paths. Thanks to Adtalem for helping us to empower all girls to be game-changers.” -Meghan Morgan, Executive Director

Girls Who Code

Girls Who Code

DeVry University, Fremont campus welcomed students from the Girls Who Code after school program in California’s Bay area for a STEM workshop, where tomorrow’s tech leaders learned about robotics and assembled their own robot.

 

"Too often girls don’t pursue computer science because they’ve never been exposed to it, or they don’t see the impact it can make on our world. Through our partnership with Adtalem Foundation, we can show them, ‘Look, you can do this. You can code this. This is a world that’s open to you, and once you learn this skill set, the possibilities are endless.’” - Reshma Saujani, Founder and CEO, Girls Who Code

Community Support

Adtalem Global Education and its family of institutions are committed to serving as responsible community citizens. Many of our campuses lend space to local non-profit organizations for regular meetings or trainings. For example, the Chicago Police Department is currently utilizing space at DeVry University’s Chicago campus for ongoing police training through 2018 [link]. Students and faculty from our health care institutions, including American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, Ross University School of Medicine and Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, Carrington College, and Chamberlain University regularly provide health care services at local health fairs. Adtalem also works with Ladder Up to provide free tax preparation services to low income individuals and families every tax season, and our campuses often welcome student serving organizations for career exploration workshops.

Employee Volunteerism

Our students and employees actively donate their time, talents and heart to many worthwhile organizations. In FY2017, over 4,000 students, faculty, and employees donated more than 2,000 hours their time and talents to worthwhile organizations and causes.

Philanthropic Giving

Adtalem Global Education recognizes that uplifting a community often requires philanthropic support, and that is why we are committed to giving back through both our 501(c)(3) charitable arm, the Adtalem Foundation, and through corporate support of non-profit and civic organizations that promote economic and workforce development, support community health and well-being, improve and increase educational access, encourage innovation, and support members of the U.S. Armed forces and their families.

Helping our Adtalem Family

The Adtalem Assistance Fund supports the colleagues and students of Adtalem Global Education’s institutions and companies who are in need. Most recently, donations to the site benefitted members of the Adtalem community who were affected by the hurricanes across the Caribbean and in Texas, as well as those in our community affected by the California wildfires.
