Student Commitments


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.

Development


Adtalem invests in our colleagues. 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. Adtalem’s 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.

Suppliers


In addition to valuing our diverse colleague 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.
