Civic engagement is embedded in all that we do at Drexel University from how we conduct business to the hands-on support we provide to local communities. Since we cannot do this alone, we rely on the support of local residents and community partners. Each year, Drexel collaborates with nonprofit organizations, public and private schools, and local government agencies to provide more than 150 unique civic engagement opportunities for our students every year.
There are high-quality community-based learning opportunities open to all Drexel students, faculty, and staff. The Lindy Center for Civic Engagement works closely with faculty members to incorporate community-based experiential learning and research opportunities into the curriculum. The Office of Human Resources is working to develop a variety of volunteer opportunities for faculty and professional staff.
