Welcome! The Mission of the Rush University Office of Academic Affairs is to promote the implementation of the Rush's strategic plan by developing and supporting programs that foster excellence in patient care via academic and personal development of all students and faculty.
The focus of the Office is on:
- Multicultural competence through education, research and clinical integration
- Faculty development and excellence
- Community service health partnerships
- Global health involvement
Our Vision is that Rush University will be recognized for creating and promoting a nurturing multicultural environment, in which faculty and students from all backgrounds embody and respect the attributes, values, and diverse perspectives which reflect the communities that we serve. Further, it will be a University in which students and faculty members have a strong sense of value, and their aspirations to serve the local and global health care needs will be fulfilled.
