Thank you for visiting the Drexel University Master Plan blog! The purpose of this blog is to create a forum through which Drexel can share its development progress and readers can gather up-to-date information about the plan as well as share their thoughts.
Drexel’s Master Plan follows four primary principles:
- Distinguish Drexel’s campus as a vibrant modern urban university district.
- Bring the campus to the street.
- Draw the community together around shared places.
- Expand the innovation community.
The Plan “applies Drexel’s Strategic Plan through the lens of the important roles the campus can play in furthering the University’s mission. The Strategic Plan’s emphasis on Drexel as a modern urban research university highlights the unique identity and potential of a campus that anchors an urban district” (Transforming the Modern Urban University: Drexel University Campus Master Plan 3).
