The Drexel Women Faculty Association supports all women faculty at the University, including women at all academic ranks and all colleges, schools, and disciplines. The mission of the group is to improve and enrich the professional environment for women faculty at Drexel and to ensure that the University continues and strengthens its commitment to the success of its women faculty members.

The group will meet monthly to discuss topics of interest to women faculty, including issues relevant to their professional and personal lives, the University community, and work-life balance. All faculty who identify as women are welcome to join.
