Board of Trustees

An important component of the Strategic Planning process is the involvement of the Board of Trustees. The Board, comprised of preeminent Drexel alums and Drexel supporters, includes entrepreneurs, business leaders, academicians, and scholars – each of whom contribute a unique perspective and years of expertise to Drexel's Plan. Board members have been engaged in the planning process, and their focused work will begin at the fall Board retreat in discussions of a preliminary draft.
