Drexel Family Association

  • Drexel Family Association (DFA) improves the student experience by providing parents and family members a network of support. The DFA serves as a connection to the University and provides parents and family members with communication, involvement, and development opportunities. 

Student Emergency Fund

The Drexel Family Association along with the Dean of Students has created a fund to support students in cases of temporary personal emergency such as family member death, medical emergency, emergency travel, natural disaster or loss of housing (fire, flood, collapse, domestic violence, etc.). Please consider supporting this fund and our students by visiting the Institutional Advancement donation page or by mailing a check made payable to Drexel University, P.O. Box 8215, Philadelphia, PA 19101. Please include "Student Emergency Fund" in the note area of the check.
