Additional Resources

At Drexel University, the health and safety of our students is our number one priority. In fact, we are dedicated to supporting and empowering all members of our Dragon community in every way possible. This commitment includes fostering an inclusive and secure environment based on trust and respect. Together, we can create a culture of care at Drexel University.

Below is a list of resources available to all Drexel students focused on their needs:

The Drexel Counseling Center offers a variety of resources and services for students to take advantage of. Their services include online peer support available through 7 Cups and a Peer Counseling Helpline available Monday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. ET. Make an appointment or call 215.895.1415 whenever you need help.

Drexel embraces the ideological, intellectual, economic, gender, ability, sexual identity, religious, age, racial, cultural, ethnic, national and all differences of our students, faculty, staff and alumni. That is why Drexel's Discrimination, Harassment and Bias Incident Prevention Policy and Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Policy provide prompt, thorough, confidential, and respectful processes for handling and investigating complaints of discrimination, harassment, and misconduct, including sexual assault (prohibited by Title IX).

Drexel University's Department of Public Safety provides 24/7 police, security, and fire safety services for the Dragon community. Students are encouraged to download the Drexel Guardian app to communicate directly with Public Safety in times of distress by text message, one-touch dialing, and to unlock other safety features, including virtual escorts, using the safety timer.

As part of the enrollment process, all students agree to read and uphold a code of high standards of behavior to help guide them through their decision making, outlined in the Code of Conduct. At Drexel, we seek to create a culture of trust and care paired with safety and responsibility while reducing any barriers that would prevent students from seeking assistance. That is why the Responsible Dragon Amnesty policy (RDAP) was created — never hesitate to seek help for someone who needs it out of fear of getting in trouble.
