Student-Run Podcast Highlights Drexel History

Run by faculty and students in Drexel’s History Department, the “Dragon’s Remember” oral history project aims to celebrate the University’s rich history through storytelling as well as preserve it for future generations.

Alumni who are interested in participating in the podcast are welcome to reach out to Scott Gabriel Knowles, professor and head of the History Department, at sgk23@drexel.edu, or Emma Carr, student project director, at erc67@drexel.edu for more information. A few of the upcoming topics include Greek life, Drexel and nonprofits and the cuisine on campus.

To kick things off as we head into the 100th anniversary of Drexel’s renowned cooperative education program, the first two podcast episodes explore the history of co-op at Drexel through alumni, staff and current student interviews.

Women in STEM Part 1 features Angela Harris, BS information systems '02. In this episode we explore the importance of representation, community and mentorships to women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Co-op Part 1 features Ian Sladen, current vice president for cooperative education and career development in the Steinbright Career Development Center, as well as Evan Ehlers ’19, founder of the nonprofit Sharing Excess, which he started as a Close School of Entrepreneurship student.

Co-op Part 2 features interviews with Ira Taffer ’79, ’83, current associate dean of faculty affairs, and Jabari Jones ’16, president of West Philadelphia Corridor Collaborative.
