Adtalem CEO Lisa Wardell led this effort with a $25,000 personal donation to support the colleagues, students and faculty of American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine who were affected by this serious weather event. With the subsequent impact of Hurricane Maria on Ross University School of Medicine, Lisa made an additional personal donation of $25,000 to support our RUSM colleagues, students and faculty affected by the storm.
The Adtalem Assistance Fund will serve the members of the Adtalem community at RUSM, AUC, RUSVM and Chamberlain University affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. In addition, this Fund will also serve students and colleagues impacted by the Northern California wildfires at DeVry University and Carrington College. These new funds reflect the values Adtalem embodies and the spirit of collaboration and empowering others that is at the heart of our organization. #WeAreAdtalem
