The Impact of Humanism

The Transformative Impact of Humanism

As you already know, the value of Humanism is what makes WesternU so unique. In health care practice, it’s about connecting with the patient and treating them as a whole person (or animal) and not just their ailment. In education, it’s about teaching students not only the knowledge and skills, but also compassion and caring. And at WesternU, it’s about the support we receive from people like you—who make up our loyal community and give us hope for a better tomorrow. Below are just some stories of impact made possible thanks to your support.
