Social Mission Alliance

Transforming Health Professions Education

NEW Social Mission Resource Library is AVAILABLE NOW


Founded by Dr. Fitzhugh Mullan, the Social Mission Alliance is a joint activity of the Mullan Institute and George Washington University. We transform health professions education by mobilizing and amplifying learners, teachers, community leaders, policymakers, and their organizations to advance equity in education, research, service, policy, and practice.

Social Mission is the contribution of a school in its mission, programs, and the performance of its graduates, faculty, and leadership in advancing health equity and addressing the health disparities of the society in which it exists.

Social Mission Metrics Badges

Schools with demonstrated commitment to social mission will soon have the opportunity to display their support with a digital badge. Thank you to our 8 Inaugural Supporters for being the first recipients of this new distinction.

How we commit to a culture of change

The Social Mission Alliance has held six National Conferences with over 2,700 attendees. Our organization was created following our first conference in 2012. 

Our Student Assembly brings together interdisciplinary health profession students passionate about social mission, to promote, network, and organize around health equity.

The Health Workforce Diversity Initiative, Social Mission Metrics Initiative, Health Justice Fellowship, and Voices for Change Fellowship advance meaningful change.

Support a better future, for all.

Health professions education continues to require curated connections and alliances between disciplines, generations, worldviews, cultures, sectors, and geographic areas.

Social Mission Alliance can only continue to effect change with the support of its membership and financial sponsors.
