Our Shared Values
Ensure that an ongoing and pervasive quest for quality informs the decisions we make, the people we hire, the students we admit, the programs we offer, and the way we conduct ourselves.
Demonstrate integrity through rigorous adherence to ethical standards; respect for shared governance; support for work-life balance and equitable policies; impartiality and freedom from conflicts of interest; and trust-based relationships with academic, corporate, government, and community partners.
Create and support a diverse university in all of its manifestations both because diversity has instrumental value — it makes Drexel's students, faculty, and University community more competitive globally — and because diversity has inherent value — it fosters understanding, respect, and opportunity — thereby forging a better university for all.
Provide access to a Drexel education to as many high-potential students as possible through innovative academic support programs, generous scholarships, financial aid, and other financing methods, and support those high-potential students to facilitate academic success and graduation.
Provide exceptional stewardship over the University's financial and physical resources while growing these resources through enrollment, philanthropy, government support, an incentive-driven resource allocation process, and wise investment of our endowment.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Continue to take informed, carefully-calculated and strategic risks to build upon our successes, start new ventures, and forge a different path forward. This legacy of innovation and entrepreneurship is the gift of our founder, Anthony J. Drexel, and it is a legacy that must be preserved, celebrated, and continuously renewed.
