Drexel’s Multidisciplinary & Emerging Programs team puts the strengths, the resources and the vision of a great and innovative university behind its programs, events, and outreach efforts.
We have a distinct and unique advantage over other universities in that the Drexel philosophy centers around the concept of experiential learning. Over the years, this has provided rich, rewarding, and productive partnerships with corporations and organizations in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, throughout the country, and around the world. Our faculty includes not only full-time instructors who have dedicated themselves to their field of interest, but experienced adjuncts who actually hold positions within the industry, bringing a practical, applied sensibility to the classroom.
The result is an understanding of what it takes to provide a practical, well-rounded education with rigorous academics and quality faculty members.
Technology & Research
At Drexel, education starts in the classroom, but it certainly doesn’t end there. Drexel offers state-of-the-art technological resources and has a robust and expanding research enterprise that features an array of use-inspired, applied research programs.
Drexel programs and services promote student learning in the areas of personal and social responsibility, civic knowledge and engagement, intercultural awareness, and application in real-world settings. Drexel’s Center for Civic Engagement provides high-quality community-based learning programs and services to students, faculty members, and our local and global communities. These programs and services promote student learning in the areas of personal and social responsibility, civic knowledge and engagement, intercultural awareness and competence and ethical reasoning, and action through the application of knowledge, skills, and responsibilities in real-world settings.
