Community Support

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. We also serve as partners to community groups by donating our resources and campus space for their programming. 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 Professional Education 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 space and support for free tax assistance programs. In Brazil, an extensive amount of volunteering and community workshops take place at our campuses, benefiting thousands of local residents.

Employee Volunteerism

In addition to financial support, Adtalem students, faculty and colleagues give back to our communities by participating in philanthropic opportunities and donating their time throughout the year at corporate and campus-supported events. Adtalem holds an annual “Month of Service,” providing a paid work day for colleagues to volunteer with a charitable organization of their choosing. Many of our colleagues, including senior leaders, also lend their expertise to the community by participating on nonprofit boards or by speaking on panels at community events.

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 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.

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.

Empower Scholarship Fund

Students who, without scholarships, may find it difficult to continue their education.
