Diversity Equity and Inclusion Fund
As a university dedicated to improving the health and well-being of society, we have an obligation to engage in an honest evaluation of where we are, to plan for where we want to be, and to take action to create a just and equitable world.
This is a time when we must take constructive actions to validate our commitment to embracing people from all backgrounds, beliefs, lifestyles and races. Giving to DEI initiatives at UWS supports students, employees, and our community.
Library Fund – Technology
The UWS library supports all academic programs by delivering information services in a variety of formats. Your gift can go beyond the collections in the library space and support electronic resources such as e-books, databases, and full-text journals that are available through the library’s website.
The UWS Community Based Internship program is intended to enhance the clinical training of chiropractic interns in their 10th and 11th quarters who meet stringent competency requirements and applicable eligibility requirements to continue their training in an approved, private chiropractic practice in our community. Interns engage in a wide range of practice activities under the mentorship of a field-based chiropractic physician to gain valuable real-world experience and insights relative to chiropractic practice. The program is intended to enhance the learning and knowledge of the chiropractic intern, supplementing what is already provided in the doctor of chiropractic curriculum. Your gift will help UWS expand this service to our community and the program for our DC students.
UWS is so much more than just bricks and mortar. Our new campus is an expression of shared values, a symbol of bold leadership and proof of the growing demand for evidence-informed, integrated, whole-person health care.
