Our mission

RUSH University champions a learning environment in health and biomedical sciences through collaboration, education, research and equity for our students, faculty, staff and the communities we serve.

Our vision

RUSH University is a model for improving health through innovative research and transformative education in a culture of excellence and equity

Our values

RUSH University’s core values — innovation, collaboration, accountability, respect and excellence — are the roadmap to our mission and vision.

These five values, known as our I CARE values, convey the philosophy behind every decision RUSH employees make. RUSH employees also commit themselves to executing these values with compassion. This translates into a dedication — shared by all members of the RUSH community — to providing the highest quality patient care.

See how these principles translate to action in our RUSH University Report 2019-2021.
