Community engagement fulfills the institution's goal of "preparing globally responsible citizens". Teaching and advising, research and scholarship, outreach, and the university community can all be enhanced through student and faculty involvement in community engaged learning.

  • More than 80% of Drake undergraduates engage in community by the time they graduate.
  • More than 33% of academic programs integrate at least one community engaged learning experience in the curriculum. For a full listing, see CEL Course List.
