Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships
Drexel University’s vision is to become the most civically engaged university in the United States, and the Dana and David Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships is the cornerstone of the commitment we’ve made to our community.
Located on 1.3 acres in the heart of the West Philadelphia Promise Zone, the Dornsife Center is a neighborhood hub that embodies the spirit of collaboration. The center brings neighbors together with all of Drexel's colleges and schools, our administrative units, and our many nonprofit partners to offer stakeholder-driven programming that supports the health, wellness and stability of the surrounding neighborhoods. Described as an “urban extension center,” it offers various programs that place Drexel students, faculty and staff alongside community members to solve problems in West Philadelphia. The Dornsife Center opened on June 12, 2014.
