Welcome


Dear Friends of Drexel University,

Each year, Drexel sets a new bar of excellence in teaching, in discovery, in service to society and in engaging and supporting our students. The University’s growing momentum is matched by our supporters’ confidence in our ongoing success.

Your outstanding generosity during the 2015 fiscal year reflects an increasing level of investment in our mission and our students. Alumni and friends like you gave more than $115 million in private support, significantly surpassing our $100 million goal and setting a new record for University fundraising. Drexel also received the largest gift in its history: a landmark commitment by influential trial lawyer Thomas R. Kline to name the Thomas R. Kline School of Law, which will transform legal education at the University for generations to come. In addition, the Anthony J. Drexel Society, representing Drexel’s most generous donors, has grown its membership by more than 20 percent over the past three years.

This groundswell of support is one of the most exciting things happening at Drexel, and you are leading the charge.

Your giving takes shape in powerful ways, from establishing student scholarships and endowed professorships in our schools and colleges to bolstering experiential education and civic engagement programs to amplifying Drexel’s signature strength in translational research.

The impact of your generosity is reflected in the achievements of the Drexel community. Last year, our students earned a record-breaking number of Fulbright research projects across four continents; launched award-winning product ventures that have attracted investors and clientele; and collaborated with community members to address urgent challenges in areas such as healthcare, K-8 education and job development. Scholarship and research flourished, with 97 new awards granted to Drexel faculty and students in the fourth quarter of 2014–15 alone, and our faculty members represented the University all over the world as speakers, visiting scholars and authors. By making Drexel a priority in your philanthropy, you are ensuring that students get the very best preparation to pursue meaningful, rewarding careers and assume leadership roles in communities around the globe. Your gifts position the University to expand its impact on the world in unprecedented ways. Thank you for a successful Fiscal Year 2015. You have helped fuel a series of remarkable accomplishments, with many more to come.

You are Drexel.

Sincerely,

John A. Fry
President



Alumni Association


       

The power of the Drexel Alumni Association and the alumni network is realized when Dragons come together and accomplish remarkable things. Throughout last year, our graduates rallied around common goals, exceeded expectations and raised the bar for all those who follow. They proved that when Drexel alumni connect, they have a lasting impact on the world around them.

Every gift to Drexel University counts. Gifts made annually through the Drexel Fund - to any area of the University - provide our students with critical resources and access to a transformative academic experience.
