Community Initiatives

We have a goal to become one of academe's most powerful engines for neighborhood improvement and regional economic growth. We are working with our neighbors to make Powelton Village and Mantua livelier and more livable communities that are great for raising families, enjoying the arts, starting businesses and dreaming big. We intentionally partner with community non-profits, public and private schools, and local government agencies to provide over 150 unique civic engagement opportunities each year to for students, faculty, and staff. Through collaborations with the community, we improve the public good on the local, national, and global levels while enriching the scholarship and character of Drexel through enhanced education.
