Campaign News

On November 11, 2017, Drexel University launched the public phase of the most ambitious fundraising campaign in our history. On- and off-campus, students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors and volunteers celebrated how far Drexel has come, and how much we are dedicated to shaping a vibrant future for all.

This video captures the excitement that ricocheted throughout the Great Court in Anthony J. Drexel's original building, when over 450 people gathered to hear about the vision for The Campaign for Drexel, with its theme The Future Is a Place We Make.

Progress to Date

We set a goal of $750 million to catalyze a new era of impact at Drexel by focusing on people and programs, including:

  • Endowed scholarships and professorships
  • Stipends for unpaid co-ops
  • Interdisciplinary teaching and research
  • Academic support and extracurricular initiatives
  • Critical upgrades to technologies and facilities
  • Opportunities to align academic strengths with community and civic needs
