About Drexel

At the Dornsife School of Public Health, the city is our campus. Located in Philadelphia, one of America’s most historic and vibrant cities, Drexel University and the Dornsife School of Public Health share a rich tradition of community engagement through partnerships and collaborations with area organizations.

The School of Public Health recently made a historic move from the Center City/Hahnemann Campus to Nesbitt Hall, in the heart of the Drexel University City Campus. The 78,000 square foot, seven-floor facility includes two large lecture halls, which will be available for use by the entire Drexel community. Renovations include dedicated instructional computer laboratory facilities, innovative research and laboratory space that fosters collaboration across the University, and office space for all Public Health academic department faculty and staff, as well as central administration.

Students at the Dornsife School of Public Health enjoy a rich cultural as well as academic experience with access to all of the resources at Drexel University, such as the John A. Daskalakis Athletic Center, Hagerty Library and countless student organizations. The university also provides a free shuttle service from the University City Campus to the Center City Campus and from Center City to the Queen Lane Medical Campus, which fosters collaboration between our students, faculty and staff and colleagues in the College of Nursing and Health Professions and the College of Medicine.

Security magazine ranked Drexel University No. 3 in the nation for safety among colleges and universities for 2012. Drexel is also committed to protecting the needs of future generations, promoting excellence in environmental stewardship and sustainability, and encouraging individual members of the University community to develop approaches to their work and lifestyles that improve the Earth’s health.
