A Note from Our Vice President and Dean of Admissions to Our International Counselors

Our commitment to diversity, broadly defined, and the thoughtful, scholarly exchange of ideas, viewpoints, and experiences is grounded in the tenets set by our founder, Anthony J. Drexel. We are extremely proud that our students come from 49 states and over 100 countries, from a variety of racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds and orientations. This pride comes because we understand and believe that the academic experience we must provide to our students is made better when they learn from each other’s experiences and viewpoints.

Great democracies are built, in fact, they thrive on change. This change often comes on the heels of elections that result in the transition of leadership and perspective. Change encourages the creation of new knowledge, inspires learning, and requires the deliberate exchange of ideas, experiences, persuasions, and perspectives. The United States is one of these great democracies, and we are entering a new period.

As an institution of higher learning, Drexel is looking forward to engaging the community in these new learning opportunities. We are prepared to educate, support, and learn from each other as we work together to solve modern day problems.

Our focus on building and nurturing a diverse community could not be stronger. We are committed to providing safe learning laboratories to encourage and require the respectful exchange of knowledge.

As an international counselor, your voice is critical to the progression of innovative and constructive dialogue as well as the advancement of these learning objectives. We encourage your feedback on how we can continue to support our students and the Drexel community. Your insights as a counselor are immensely important to us and allow us to grow as a University.

Drexel will continue to provide the necessary access, resources, support services and educational opportunities that we have offered international students over the past decades regardless of the recent rhetoric in our nation’s election.

Please contact us if you have any questions by emailing enroll@drexel.edu or calling 215.895.2400.

Sincerely,

Evelyn K. Thimba
Vice President & Dean of Admissions
