Bastyr University, located in Kenmore, Washington, is a progressive internationally recognized pioneer in Natural Health Arts and Sciences education and research. Founded in 1978 as a single-purpose college for naturopathic medicine, 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. The Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) has regionally accredited Bastyr University 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 University California is a branch campus located in San Diego California.
The flagship program is the Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND) offered by the School of Naturopathic Medicine (SNM). It is designed to train primary care naturopathic physicians to transform the health and well-being of the human community. The naturopathic program at Bastyr has been continually accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medicine (CNME) since 1987.
University Vision: As the world’s leading academic center for advancing and integrating knowledge in the natural health arts and sciences, Bastyr University will transform the health and well-being of the human community.
University Mission: We educate future leaders in the natural health arts and sciences. Respecting the healing power of nature and recognizing that body, mind, and spirit are intrinsically inseparable, we model an integrated approach to education, research, and clinical service.
Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) Academic Commitment: 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.
In alignment with Bastyr’s DEI commitment, applications from members of underrepresented groups are encouraged.
