The Office of Global Engagement contributes to the mission of transforming the university into a global hub of academic and professional excellence. It works with units across the university to build an ecosystem of global partnerships and programs both on and off campus through Drexel’s trademark programs in co-op, education abroad, research partnerships and industry relations.
Partnerships and Exchanges
Drexel University and the Office of Global Engagement have established partnerships for research and education — such as dual degree programs, undergraduate exchange programs and community engagement opportunities — with institutions around the globe. View the map below for a representation of these partnerships.
Students have access to a variety of opportunities to take courses in a different country — from short-term Intensive Courses Abroad to six-month programs and fully funded opportunities like the Dornsife Global Development Scholars program.
Global Classrooms are courses that engage Drexel students with students at one of our partner universities abroad through a range of interactive technologies. Faculty members from any discipline who are interested in incorporating a global dimension into their scheduled class and link it to a class of students at an international partner institution are eligible to participate.
Hubs Abroad (Launching 2022)
Through broad consultation, the Office of Global Engagement will select a handful of existing strategic partners in key locations all over the world to deepen and scale up our collaboration, including research, education abroad, dual-admission degrees, recruitment, co-op, civic engagement, and alumni and industry relations. Through these "Hubs Abroad," Drexel will, over time, significantly expand our global imprint without the expensive and risky proposition of building campuses away.
Every year, OGE funds numerous faculty, students and staff awards for a diverse range of international experiences. Funding opportunities include, but not are limited to:
- Global Engagement Funding (students, faculty and staff)
- International Presentation Awards (faculty and graduate students)
- The Louis and Bessie Stein Family Fellowship (students, faculty and staff)
