Dear Future Colleagues,
If you’re like me, you chose a career in higher education advancement because it makes a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of people for generations. Higher education is the foundation of our democracy, economy and intellectual environment.
I’d like to introduce you to our institution, Drexel University –– an innovative university and potentially the best place for you to pursue your interests and put your skills to work.
Founded in 1891, this University has a historic and distinctive belief in the power of interdisciplinary programs, research that solves real-world problems, experiential learning that serves first-time graduates, and technology in which undergraduate, graduate, and professional education moves well beyond the classroom and laboratory.
Today, Drexel’s pioneering approach is now widely recognized and appreciated. Today Drexel ranks 86th among all national universities in the list of 2011 “Best Colleges” published by U.S. News & World Report. In addition, Drexel is the 48th-highest ranked private university on the list, and we are one of only two Philadelphia schools (the other is the University of Pennsylvania) in the top 100. Drexel also tied for 2nd place in the U.S. News list of “Up-and-Comers.” These are institutions that college administrators nationwide cite for “the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty, student life, campus or facilities.” We are greatly accelerating our direction for the future as we enhance our resources.
We at Drexel are committed to creating a first-rate Institutional Advancement organization that fully utilizes technology, recruits the top talent in the field, creates a cohesive and collaborative team, and rewards initiative.
Poised to go public with a comprehensive fund-raising campaign, our organization is focused on recruiting experienced, entrepreneurial advancement professionals.
If your experience, competencies and aspirations match the positions posted on our web site, I encourage you to send us a cover letter and resume. Let’s explore, together, the prospects of your joining a team that will achieve institutional, professional, and personal success.
