Honoring Drexel’s Most Distinguished Alumni

Angela Dowd-BurtonOver the past 30 years Drexel 100 membership has grown to 298 distinguished alumni with the vast majority living in the Northeast or Mid-Atlantic states, Florida and California.

Members’ varied professions, areas of expertise, networks and talents span multiple generations and provide us with the opportunity to focus our energies on the goals of the University’s strategic plan, Drexel 2030. The purpose of the plan is to address the profound shifts in higher education as well as the broader challenges facing society. My goal is to create a collaborative spirit that inspires a culture of innovation and empowers our students to be purpose-driven, global citizens.

I am also excited to share that the Drexel 100 Endowed Scholarship Fund is live online. Our goal is to build a $1.2 million endowment, allowing the Drexel 100 to aid deserving students each year with the scholarships, into perpetuity. You can support undergraduate students in their preparation as future leaders by making a gift to the Drexel 100 Endowed Scholarship Fund today.

Suggestions for candidates for The Drexel 100 are always welcome. Please email the names of worthy alumni and why they should be honored to Dave Lanza, MS ’12, director of alumni relations, at
