A Word From...

Vivian Bull
President

We recently launched Drew2017, a process through which we will put our ambitious strategic plan into action with an eye to achieving institutional sustainability. We have already taken steps to consolidate administrative units and have embarked on the process of prioritizing academic offerings. This work is essential to Drew's future success and, in the near term, it affects our transition planning.
