About Bastyr:

Bastyr is a progressive internationally recognized pioneer in Natural Health Arts and Sciences education and research. Founded in 1978, the University today offers graduate and undergraduate degree programs that reflect multidisciplinary, science-based natural health curricula with an emphasis on the integration of mind, body, spirit, and nature. Regionally accredited since 1989, Bastyr University is composed of three schools, the School of Naturopathic Medicine, The School of Natural Health Arts and Sciences and the School of Traditional World Medicines. Bastyr is comprised of a main campus in Kenmore, WA, a health clinic in Seattle, and a branch campus and health clinic in San Diego. 

Bastyr University believes that inclusive diversity is essential for achieving academic excellence and creating a profoundly enriching university experience. Our faculty and staff are committed to achieving our mission by educating students to be future leaders that bring the natural health arts and sciences to people from all backgrounds. Promoting an educational environment that allows students, faculty and staff to develop their talents while experiencing a sense of community, we expect campus members to engage in respectful communication, behaviors and thoughtful self-reflection, increase their understanding of cultures and empower people who are disenfranchised, marginalized or oppressed. In so doing, the University pledges to prepare our students (and support faculty and staff) to recognize and appropriately respond to health inequities that affect multiple communities. This involves infusing DEI knowledge, skills, and practices in all academic programs, clinical training and patient services. In all, Bastyr University is dedicated to the welfare of our students and patients as well as to promoting equal opportunity and access in education and health care.
