Mission: MCU believes that all individuals who seek midwifery education should be able to access it. Unfortunately, too often, this is not a reality, and midwifery education, along with the midwifery profession at-large, suffers without diverse communities and representation. We want to raise $50,000 in order to continue to offer our complete tuition relief scholarships that allow underrepresented students to obtain a bachelor's degree in midwifery. As certified professional midwives rise to serve childbearing individuals during the Covid-19 pandemic, now, more than ever educating midwives to serve diverse communities is imperative.
Geographic areas served: Midwives College of Utah's (MCU) mission is to build midwives of technical expertise, professional excellence, and personal greatness—namely Midwives of Excellence®. MCU midwives will be pivotal in the “tipping" revolution of maternity care and birth culture throughout North America in the 21st century. MCU's method for building Midwives of Excellence® is to meld professional and leadership education. Professional education prepares students for expertise in their chosen profession; leadership education teaches students “how" to think. Graduates from MCU serve a spectrum of people from many different economic and social levels, providing excellent primary maternity care for prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum periods.

I donate regularly to Midwives College of Utah because I believe in their mission of providing a high-quality education for people to become midwives. Now more than ever, we need midwives to help resolve the current healthcare crisis in the United States. MCU alumni have a well-rounded education and understand all aspects of the Midwives Model of Care.
I received my associate's degree and my bachelor's degree from Midwives College of Utah. I loved being a student there! Their online platform made it easier for me as a single mom to have the flexibility to fit school into my busy life. I appreciated that they are student-focused and committed to reducing racial and socioeconomic disparities within the midwifery field. Not only did I receive a vibrant education, but MCU also helped me to develop into a better member of my local community.
