Exterior of Drexel's Main Building Stronger Advocates and Better Partners on Anti-Racism

The following message was sent to the University community from Drexel President John Fry: I am writing to update you on where we stand in advancing the anti-racism agenda that I laid out last month. I am deeply committed to creating an anti-racist community at Drexel where all students, faculty, and professional staff know they are seen for their individual skills and talents, and not judged through the lens of preconceived racist notions, thoughts or beliefs. As a university, we are equipped to tackle racism by educating our community and practicing the behaviors we value.
