Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Drake faculty and staff have worked to reimagine ways to deliver instruction virtually, ensuring excellence across all of our undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs.

We’re keeping our promise—you can count on Drake.

Our Drake Commitment stands during this time of uncertainty. We promised to provide an exceptional learning environment that prepared our students for meaningful personal lives, professional accomplishments, and responsible global citizenship—and we meant it.

The stories below are just a sampling of how Drake is keeping its commitment to always deliver personal mentorship, an opportunity to serve, the power of community, and a lifetime of value.

The Drake Commitment—the translation of our mission promise into action—is more relevant and imperative than it has ever been. No matter the circumstances, we will always deliver:

Personal Mentorship. Drake surrounds students with dedicated faculty and staff who support and guide them while they are at Drake and serve as mentors for life.

The Power of Community. Drake connects students with diverse learning experiences, a dynamic city, and a vast network of alumni eager to help them succeed.

A Lifetime of Value. Drake delivers hands-on academic and co-curricular experiences that prepare students to make an impact in their community and navigate an increasingly complex world.
