Commitment Header for Inauguration of Earl F. Martin.

About the Theme

Life-changing experiences, exceptional learning, and groundbreaking scholarship don’t just happen. It takes commitment—to something larger than oneself, to future possibilities, to excellence.

That commitment lives in the heart of every Bulldog. Guided by our mission and values, we strive every day to provide an inclusive living and learning environment that integrates the liberal arts with professional preparation and develops the leaders of tomorrow.

The 13th presidential inauguration marks President Martin’s commitment to uphold these values, to inspire innovation and honor tradition, to lead with integrity—and to pursue new heights in higher education. And it reflects the community’s continued and renewed dedication to a transformational Drake education.
