Today’s world is more interconnected, more globalized, and changes more quickly than ever before. When you graduate from Drake we want you to be prepared for the challenges and opportunities presented by this new reality.
This kind of preparation requires more than a few classes devoted to international or multicultural issues. Instead, it means infusing an international perspective throughout your Drake experience, so you gain a better understanding of your own culture and abilities and learn to work with people who have different perspectives, backgrounds, and skills to contribute.
What does this mean for you? It means you can study Spanish in Chile, intern in China, or help build a clinic in Uganda. You can even develop these important cross-cultural skills without ever leaving campus. Every step of the way—whether it’s in your classes or during campus activities—Drake will provide valuable experiences and lessons to help you prepare for a successful future as a global citizen.
