Our TEACH values—Teamwork, Energy, Accountability, Community and Heart—shape how we work together to fulfill our promise to our students, our members and each other.
Adtalem’s voluntary Student Commitments build upon our strong foundation of existing practices to benefit, inform and support students at all of our Title IV institutions. Because we are committed to continuous improvement and accountability, we review and refresh our Commitments annually, and an independent third party measures our results for a public report. Details about Student Commitments can be found here.
As part of the Student Commitments, Adtalem is dedicated to the responsible marketing of its products and services, as well as transparency and accuracy in all of its advertising messages and promotional communications. All content developed for use in the United States is governed by the Adtalem Marketing Communications Policy.
Adtalem promotes and values a culture of diversity and inclusion, where all colleagues feel welcomed, respected, supported and valued. Our EDGE (Empowerment, Diversity, Growth, Excellence) network, which supports the enhanced career experience and advancement of women in the workforce, is one of our most vibrant internal programs promoting professional development and diversity, with 23 chapters globally. Given EDGE’s vision to empower an internationally diverse group of women to network, mentor and participate in professional development programs, our students and members are also invited to attend select EDGE events hosted by their local chapters. Further details about Diversity at Adtalem can be found here.
In addition to valuing our diverse colleague, member and student base, our Supplier Diversity Policy recognizes the benefit of creating an equal opportunity for all suppliers and our commitment to diversity and nondiscrimination in our business operations. We have multi-year goals in place for total spending with diverse suppliers and are actively tracking those expenditures. Our supplier policies can be viewed here.
Adtalem invests in our team. Professional training courses are available through multiple online resources. A tuition assistance program is also offered to colleagues to aid in their further educational development. Learn more about the ways we support colleague development here.
To help potential students make more informed decisions about their education options, the U.S. Department of Education has set forth disclosure guidelines. Adtalem’s Title IV institutions are proud to be an industry leader in this effort and are committed to providing transparency for our applicants on the key outcomes for our students, including graduate rates and earnings.

In 2019, Adtalem Global Education joined the HBCU Challenge of the Congressional Black Caucus, becoming the first educational partner to take the challenge. Ross University School of Medicine partners with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) to provide a prescriptive path to medical training for their graduates. These partnerships will increase opportunities for aspiring students, while helping to improve the participation of physicians of color, especially in primary care medicine. Additionally, according to institutional analysis of data as of 7/15/19 from The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, Chamberlain University was the largest provider of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degrees to underrepresented minority students in the United States.
