About Drexel University

Drexel is a comprehensive global research university ranked among the top 100 in the nation. With over 24,000 students, Drexel is one of America's 15 largest private universities. In founding Drexel University, Philadelphia financier and philanthropist Anthony J. Drexel launched a tradition of innovation. Mr. Drexel envisioned an institution of higher learning uniquely suited to the needs of a rapidly growing industrial society and of the young men and women seeking their place in it — core values that continue to guide the University in its modern era. Mr. Drexel’s vision was officially realized in 1891 with the establishment of the Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry. Drexel is one of Philadelphia's top 10 private employers, and a major engine for economic development in the region. Drexel has committed to being the nation’s most civically engaged university, with community partnerships integrated into every aspect of service and academics. Their commitment to diversity, broadly defined, and the thoughtful, scholarly exchange of ideas, viewpoints, and experiences is grounded in the tenets set by their founder, Anthony J. Drexel. They are extremely proud that their students come from 49 states and over 100 countries, from a variety of racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds and orientations. This pride comes because they understand and believe that the academic experience they must provide to their students is made better when they learn from each other’s experiences and viewpoints.

As an institution of higher learning, Drexel is looking forward to engaging the community in these new learning opportunities. They are prepared to educate, support, and learn from each other as they work together to solve modern day problems. Their focus on building and nurturing a diverse community could not be stronger. They are committed to providing safe learning laboratories to encourage and require the respectful exchange of knowledge. Welcome to Drexel University and welcome to the office of International Students and Scholars Services (ISSS). ISSS offers a vast array of programs and services to approximately 5,000 international students, scholars and faculty representing 117 different countries. The ISSS staffs works to promote meaningful interaction between United States Citizens and nationals of other countries by organizing culturally enriching opportunities for all members of the Drexel community. A student's affiliation with ISSS begins immediately after the admission process and continues well beyond graduation. ISSS staff can advise international students, scholars and faculty on immigration, cultural, financial, academic and personal concerns, and makes appropriate referrals when necessary.

Drexel University's lively urban campus is located in one of America's most exciting cities — Philadelphia. In a world-class city for business, art, and education, Philadelphia's skyscrapers are coupled with a blend of distinct and culturally diverse neighbourhoods, creating a unique metropolitan yet intimate urban experience. Surrounded by tree-lined residential blocks just minutes away from Philadelphia's downtown Centre City district, Drexel makes its home in the neighbourhood of University City. Comprised of five additional universities and dotted by coffee shops, restaurants, shops, and farmers markets, University City is just one of the many reasons Philadelphia makes an ideal place for students to live, play, and learns.
