An Update on Exploring Affiliation with Salus University

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to join a virtual briefing on Tuesday, April 25, from noon to 1 p.m., to learn more about the potential affiliation between Drexel and Salus University, a highly regarded institution that offers a wide range of non-overlapping graduate degree programs in the health sciences. As noted in a message earlier this week, many universities are pursuing these types of partnerships as part of a strategy to tap into new markets in areas of study that have strong labor demand outlooks.

The form and conditions of a proposed Drexel-Salus affiliation will be finalized after the completion of due diligence and approval by the Boards of Trustees of both Drexel and Salus in May, as well as any required regulatory, judicial or other approvals. There will also be an extensive integration and implementation process involving key stakeholders who will work together to ensure that the academic and administrative operations of Drexel and Salus are aligned to successfully move forward with the affiliation in the most appropriate, effective and efficient manner. In the meantime, we would like to take this opportunity to update you on where matters currently stand.

Please submit your questions in advance by completing the form available at this link. We look forward to your attendance and questions as we explore this exciting opportunity.
