Adtalem Global Education and its family of institutions and companies are committed to serving as responsible community citizens. We provide community support to charitable and civic organizations globally that share Adtalem’s values. Adtalem is aligned with the medical, nursing and healthcare communities, helping to cover costs of medical services and supplies for groups in need. Students and faculty from our medical and healthcare institutions regularly provide healthcare services at local health fairs, as well. Our Financial Services businesses support groups that align with their areas of expertise. ACAMS® actively contributes to organizations that combat human trafficking, reflecting one of the target areas of their anti-money laundering professionals, and as a reflection of Becker Professional Education’s CPA prep courses, Adtalem has provided support for tax assistance and financial literacy programs.
ACAMS actively supports numerous organizations that combat human slavery and trafficking — both sources of illegally laundered funds.
Staff at its Miami offices work closely with Kristi House.

Pictured above, AUC School of Medicine students volunteer with the Player Development SXM Little League Baseball Program during a Community Action Day.
Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine’s Small Ruminant Student Club collaborated with the St. Kitts & Nevis Ministry of Agriculture to improve goat production on both islands. Through the crossbreeding of local indigenous species with goats from the United States, the project will enhance the agriculture industry through the quality of livestock on the island by producing offspring with better growth rates and stronger resistance to local diseases.
Our team is passionate about giving back to the communities in which we work, live and teach, and to helping those in need. Around the world we collectively use our skills and volunteer our time in fulfillment of our values. Adtalem students, faculty and employees participate in philanthropic opportunities throughout the year at corporate and campus-supported events. Adtalem holds an annual “Month of Service,” providing a paid work day for employees to volunteer with a charitable organization of their choosing. Many of our employees, including senior leaders, also lend their expertise to the community by participating on nonprofit boards or by speaking on panels at community events.
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 Global Education 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.
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.
Founded in 2010, the Adtalem Global Education Foundation focuses on supporting education and workforce initiatives that advance career opportunities for new majority students and improve the economic health of local communities. The Foundation’s sole member is Adtalem Global Education, its purpose being to empower students to achieve their goals, find success and make inspiring contributions to our global community. Adtalem and its private Foundation support non-profit organizations that reflect Adtalem's mission and vision of an equitable, healthy and economically productive society in the United States and abroad.
Established in 2000, the Empower Scholarship Fund provides financial support in the form of scholarships (restricted and unrestricted) to current students, especially those with the greatest need and who have established a successful academic track record. Students who, without scholarships, may find it difficult to continue their education.
