Diversity & Inclusive Excellence Committee

Drexel University has a strong commitment to the value of diversity, as elucidated in our University Strategic Plan 2012-2017. In that plan, diversity is included among our shared values. The plan states that Drexel strives to, “Create and support a diverse university in all of its manifestations both because diversity has instrumental value – it makes Drexel’s students, faculty, and university community more competitive globally – and because diversity has inherent value – it fosters understanding, respect, and opportunity – thereby forging a better university for all.” In keeping with our goal of fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, in 2012 President John Fry and Provost Emeritus Mark Greenberg commissioned the Diversity and Inclusive Excellence Committee.
