Introducing a New Neighbor

Drexel University

How can a university invite the community in?

With an energetic president committed to community engagement, Drexel University seeks to ensure that its neighbors rise with it. A lead gift from Dana and David Dornsife enabled Drexel to secure three historic buildings close to campus, where they could serve as a unique urban extension center. Drexel professors and students work with nearby residents to address community priorities and learn from each other.

A SteegeThomson communications plan helped promote and position the Center, while a suite of materials presented the Center’s benefits to support fundraising. A compre­hensive website created by SteegeThomson offers program information as well as naming opportunities, while our iPad case and print brochure combine visuals and bold graphics.
