Dear Colleagues,

In the spring of 2021, we announced the inaugural cohort of Provost Solutions Fellows. A joint initiative of the Provost’s Office and the Drexel Solutions Institute, the Fellows comprise faculty experts from across the University who partner with external organizations to address organizational challenges, build research and scholarship, and create experiential learning opportunities for Drexel students.
