A University office that acts as an advocate for Drexel students that live off-campus, focused on supporting all aspects of the commuter experience, including student engagement and off-campus housing.
International Students and Scholars Services (ISSS) offers programs and services to international students, scholars, and faculty by organizing culturally enriching opportunities for all members of the Drexel community. Additionally, ISSS staff can advise international students, scholars and faculty on immigration, cultural, financial, academic and personal concerns, such as housing, VISA preparation, SEVIS payment, health insurance and immunization, and more.
Students from nearly 100 countries have made Drexel their choice for graduate education. Drexel is proud to serve as home to a welcoming and inclusive community dedicated to the advancement of knowledge and society. Learn more about services and resources available to international students.
It is the role of the Ombuds to seek to resolve conflicts and complaints for all members of the University community-students, faculty, and staff-that are not subject to other dispute resolution processes, such as: interpersonal relations, academic integrity, allegation of ethical or misconduct issues, career management, fear of coming forward or of acting to stop unacceptable behavior, fear of retaliation or allegation of retaliation, abuse of power, bullying, unfair treatment, policy issues, safety issues, working conditions, tenure appeals, or issues dealt with by OED. The Ombuds is not the advocate or representative of any group or person, but impartially seeks to assist any member of the University community.
Drexel University supports an environment that respects the religious observances of others and is committed to making every reasonable effort to accommodate the religious observances of instructors, students and professional staff. In order to maintain an environment that supports individual religious beliefs, there are several resources for religious accommodations as they pertain to: housing and dining, academic, and work-related needs.
Students looking to explore religion and spirituality are encouraged to utilize the numerous religious spaces, join religious student organizations, and seek counsel from University Chaplains.
The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life, the Student Center for Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Campus Engagement collaborate with students and campus or community chaplains to cultivate a culture of mutual respect for the variety of faith traditions on campus. We encourage all students at Drexel University to take advantage of the spectrum of resources available both on and off campus to support their spiritual development and identity. Student Life strives to provide sacred, educational, and fellowship spaces, and to foster inclusive and interfaith experiences led by professional staff, and campus and community chaplains.
The Student Center for Diversity and Inclusion (SCDI) supports and empowers students of all backgrounds as they build a sense of community that reflects the diversity of Drexel University’s student body. Our office engages Drexel’s AHLANA(1), LGBTQIA+(2), first generation and international student populations through direct advocacy, and intentional identity-based community building. We are active advocates for student diversity, intersectional social justice, and education on campus; and we work to ensure our students feel their whole identity is included and respected during their time here at Drexel.
The Office of Veteran Student Services coordinates a campus-wide effort to ensure that student-veterans and military dependents are able to access high-quality campus services with ease; our goal is to create a truly military-friendly campus community through our welcoming and informative approach
