Over 125 years ago, the Industrial Revolution inspired Anthony J. Drexel to create a new kind of education: inclusive, pragmatic, interdisciplinary and future-oriented. Drexel’s proudly-urban college trained workers who were also thinkers.
Today, Drexel graduates must embrace the challenges and opportunities of a world that changes even more rapidly. In the current digital revolution, new technologies upend entire industries and reshape economies. Climate change threatens the very existence of some regions, while it robs others of water, agriculture and wildlife. And disparities in health, education and computer-literacy deepen the divides that separate people from opportunity and each other.
More than ever, this world needs Drexel University — an ambitious, vibrant community of innovators, striving to make life better and ensuring that talented students from every background still have access to the best education.
With world-class research, we embrace local and global challenges. Forging solutions, we break through traditional academic silos and nurture campus-community partnerships. The Drexel Co-op – an unparalleled integration of workplace immersion and curricular innovation – anchors our distinct model of experiential education. We also provide rich opportunities for research, entrepreneurship and civic engagement. These experiences ensure that students become leaders in the classroom, the workplace, the community and wherever they go.
