The Rush Education and Career Hub extends Rush University Medical Center’s legacy of support for Chicago school communities. Since 1990, thousands of students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade have participated in science and math enrichment experiences. We integrate these learning experiences into a cradle-to-career pipeline, with a mission to increase diversity in STEM and health care professions, developing the workforce of the future.
Our goals are to increase high school graduation rates, college matriculation and interest in STEM and health care careers. Our students build skills for the 21st-century workforce, including communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and leadership.
