In addition to the build-out of the academic facilities at the Lloyd
Erskine Sandiford Centre, RUSM has also completed construction for a
living community for students at The Villages at Coverley. With the help
of the Barbados government, RUSM has established a busing cooperative
with local transportation business owners to transport students between
Coverley and the campus. To date, the construction projects have
provided work for over 1,000 Bajans, and the annual economic impact of
RUSM in Barbados is estimated to be between $55-$60 million.

RUSM is part of Adtalem's medical and health care education vertical,
which also includes American University of the Caribbean School of
Medicine on Sint Maarten, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine
on St. Kitts, and Chamberlain University, one of the largest providers
of nursing education in the United States.
