Giving to Drew

Last year Drew provided more than $27 million in aid to academically qualified students. This level of financial assistance would not be possible without alumni support. Make your gift this year to The Fund for Drew - we call it the annual fund, but our students call it the opportunity of a lifetime.

A Word From...

Carlos L. Yordán
Special Assistant to the Provost on Diversity and Associate Professor in Political Science

Did you know that the class of 2014 is the most diverse in the history of the College of Liberal Arts? Were you aware that among the thirteen United Methodist seminaries, our Theological School has the most diverse student body?

At Drew, we do not pursue diversity just for the sake of increasing the number of underrepresented minority students, though that is a critical goal as well. We do so because understanding and appreciating diverse perspectives, ways of life, and cultural traditions makes for a more meaningful education experience that benefits all students.
