The Office of Government and Community Relations works to establish good relationships with our City’s elected officials and their staff, and seek their support in all of our efforts. OGCR works very closely with Councilwoman Jannie L. Blackwell, who is the District Council member for our University City Main Campus, to pursue Drexel’s Master Plan and also revitalize our West Philadelphia neighborhood.
Accomplishments include: the construction of both our Race Street and Millennium Hall dormitories; the expansion of the College of Medicine’s Queen Lane campus; the construction of the Earle Mack School of Law; the closure of Race Street between 33rd and 34th Streets; the construction of the new Dining Terrace; the construction of the Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building; and the construction of the new Recreation Center on Market Street which happen with the acquisition of land from the City to Drexel University.
