Drexel Student Learning Priorities Mission Statement

Students graduating from Drexel University demonstrate competency in a field of study evidenced by achievement of a set of program-specific learning outcomes. In addition, they also demonstrate meaningful progress in six core intellectual and practical skill areas and five experiential and applied learning areas. Learning in these core areas supports, and is integrated with, learning in their disciplines. Students exhibit levels of competency in each of these areas appropriate to their program of study, their individual interests, and their abilities. The Drexel Student Learning Priorities provide the framework for a broad education across disciplines and lay the foundation for a successful future.
