Build Your Future

June 3, 2013

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 (DSLPs) provide the framework for a broad education across disciplines and lay the foundation for a successful future.

The DSLP Build Your Future invites students to continue to develop the goals, values, and aspirations that have guided them through their Drexel education into a foundation for a successful future. In line with the Build Your Future learning priority, this workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to review and discuss the goals, values, and aspirations that guided them through their Drexel education and begin to articulate their goals for the future.

Discussion questions during the session will include:

  • What were your aspirations when you started at Drexel University?
  • What goals have you accomplished while at Drexel University?
  • What do you value most in your education at Drexel University?
  • How will a Drexel University education help you build your future?
  • What will you carry with you from the Drexel University experience as you build your future?

Drexel alumni will share their experience and the most important learning goals they have carried with them into their careers. Different goal setting activities will be introduced to emphasize how the lessons learned at Drexel University can be incorporated into planning for success after graduation.
