NUNM Allies

The Allies program consists of a visible network of faculty and staff who provide empathy, acceptance, support and resources for NUNM’s community members. NUNM Allies believe that our campus is enriched by the diversity of its community members and are willing to assist individuals in accessing support, information and resources in a mutually respectful and safe space.


The mission of AWARE (Actively Working to Advance Real Equity) is to create a culture of inclusion at NUNM, guide the effective recruitment and retention of diverse faculty, students and staff, and to promote excellence in natural medicine by providing culturally and linguistically appropriate education and health care.

Goal of AWARE: Create an environment at NUNM that is genuinely welcoming to all community members, with an emphasis on preparing students to work with the diversity they will encounter in all their professional activities.
