Programs

Community Engagement is part of the fabric of Drake University as shown in our mission, strategic plan, and values. Over 80% of our students have a community service or service-learning experience by the time they graduate and approximately, 70% of our faculty and staff are engaged in the local community through serving on boards, actively volunteering with a community organization, or supporting different professional development associations. The following is a sampling of our Community Engagement & Service-Learning programming:
