MISSION STATEMENT
Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science is a private non-profit student centered University that is committed to cultivating diverse health professional leaders who are dedicated to social justice and health equity for underserved populations through outstanding education, research, clinical service, and community engagement.

VALUES
Community – At CDU, community encompasses historically underserved, underresourced, and underrepresented groups such as those in South Los Angeles and around the world that are impacted by health disparities.  As a value, “community” is the binding spirit that inspires and drives our unique approach in preparing health professionals dedicated to social justice and health equity.

Leadership – At CDU, we hold ourselves accountable and define our collective and individual responsibility as a catalyst for change necessary to reduce and eliminate health disparities. As a value, “leadership” means we embrace our role as a pioneer in health education and research.

Excellence – At CDU, excellence is the highest quality performance in our operations, interactions, activities, and service to our community. Excellence invokes the desire to challenge and transcend the status quo. As a value, “excellence” represents the transformation we seek in ourselves and in our students, faculty, and staff.

Diversity – At CDU, diversity is defined by the multiple perspectives and ideas, plurality of cultures, variety of ethnicities, and differences in individuals within our communities. As a value, “diversity” represents a quintessential element of humanity and social justice for all.

Integrity – At CDU, integrity is the strength of character necessary to remain true to our values even in the face of adversity.  As a value, “integrity” is conducting trustworthy, ethical, and respectful education, research, clinical, and other services in our committed engagement with underserved communities.

Compassion – At CDU, compassion is empathy for the plights and predicaments of disadvantaged populations. As a value, “compassion” propels us to hear the voiceless, compels us to advocate for the oppressed, and obliges us to seek relief for the deprived.
