Stand with DMU by making your gift to the Glanton fund
As our nation continues to grapple with longstanding racial injustice and disparities, Des Moines University is working to be part of the solution in health care. The Glanton Fund represents our response to persistent poor health outcomes related to race.
Established in 2004, the fund generates scholarships for minority students, who are under-represented in the health care professions, and supports programs that foster the cultural humility of all DMU students.
The impact of the Glanton Fund
The Glanton Fund supports Des Moines University’s three-pronged approach in tackling race-related disparities:
- Increase the number of minorities in the health care workforce
- Prepare all students to provide culturally competent care
- Provide students with opportunities to work directly with underserved populations
The Glanton Fund: By the Numbers
- More than $3.7 million total endowment
- Nearly $2.7 million awarded to students
- All 1,559 enrolled students impacted last year
