Drexel University's pursuit of an intentional mission as an engaged anchor institution does not happen in a vacuum, or in a silo. As a major research university, Drexel is an important economic engine in Philadelphia. This work also speaks to the very meaning of higher education, and to how a university defines itself. And finally, in this work Drexel is acting as a leader in a movement that animates similar work in universities and health care organizations across North America.
The benefit of that growth has to reach deep into our communities, so no one is left behind, or pushed out.
At Drexel we frame education as a solution-centered, problem-solving experience, across disciplines.
“Drexel sets a new standard.”
