The first chapter in a South Korean collaboration proved fruitful for Drexel's nanomaterials researchers, who learned that it takes big thinking to make progress on the smallest of scales.
In the battle to adapt to and mitigate climate change caused by humans, most environmental engineers and climate scientists agree that cities are the front line. Due to the sheer density of their population, and the quantity of resources they consume, cities have the potential to most quickly and significantly affect—and be affected by—climate risks. They also have the ability to integrate climate resiliency into their plans for the future, according to environmental engineering professor Franco Montalto, PhD, who will direct a network of North American climate change researchers concerting their efforts via a new hub at Drexel University.
A new program run by a new faculty member in Drexel's Dornsife School of Public Health will attempt to address education as a determinant of HIV risk in young South African mothers.
In September 2016 the Global Learning Community (GLC) was officially launched as Drexel’s first multicultural-focused residential living/learning community. Kelly Hall is now home to the largest learning community on campus where international and domestic students alike participate in programming focused on the study abroad experience, foreign languages, international studies, and multiculturalism.
Drexel recently received a grant to pay the $135 fee required for students to apply for a passport and travel the world.
A passport isn’t required to enter the Drexel Study Abroad Office, but over seventy students passed through the doors of Suite 201 in the Peck Problem Solving and Research Center as proud new holders of US passports.
