During their time on campus, these scholars have the opportunity to experience Drexel’s renowned experiential education through site visits, collaborative projects, and partnership development with local organizations. By taking part in service projects on campus and across the City of Philadelphia, the Fellows will also join President John Fry’s mission to make Drexel "the most civically engaged university in the United States, across all three dimensions of engagement: academic, student and employee voluntarism, and institutionally supported neighborhood investment."
