Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, Class of 2025

MWU and CCOM seemed like a perfect match for me due to their emphasis on giving back to low-income communities and teaching their students to be compassionate healthcare providers.

Diversity Equity & Inclusion


At Midwestern University, diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to our academic life, campus community, and clinical practice. We value and celebrate the diverse backgrounds of each of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and patients. We strongly believe that a diverse and welcoming campus leads to innovation, creativity, collaboration, and understanding - values that are foundation aspects of healthcare education and patient care delivery. Diversity enriches the educational and employment experience for everyone and is a necessary part of excellence. We embrace open access to education and opportunity for everyone, and we are unequivocal in our support of underrepresented and historically marginalized groups. We also recognize that there is more work to be done. To ensure these ideals are upheld, we have established the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and have committed additional resources to further develop a fully inclusive community.
