Undergraduate Academic Advisement

Drexel University School of Education

The ongoing support of faculty and staff is important for student success. At Drexel, our community of faculty and administrative staff work together to provide academic resources and build a nurturing, supportive environment for our undergraduate students.

Undergraduate Advisors

Our undergraduate education academic advisors guide students through choosing courses, understanding certification requirements, navigating co-op experiences and obtaining field placements. Our objective is to help students make the most of their time at Drexel, as well as arm them with the right academic resources to achieve their academic and career goals.

Professional Development for Educators

Graduates of the program are eligible for support after graduation through the Early Career Practitioner Institute. This unique, two-year teaching mentorship program helps ensure that new teachers have the tools and academic resources they need to succeed.

Academic resources available includes:

  • On-site coaching
  • Professional development
  • Networking
  • Research opportunities
  • Opportunities for continuing education

The Early Career Practitioner Institute (ECPI) aims to provide ongoing professional development and in-classroom support to recent Drexel graduates and Teacher Certification candidates for a period of two (2) years after they complete their program. Specifically, participants of the ECPI initiative at Drexel University will be provided with classroom-based mentoring and coaching, of which a Drexel University Site Supervisor will facilitate. The ECPI offers support to our alumni as they begin their teaching career and the support can be tailored to the alumni’s needs.
