In preparation for one of the largest first-year classes in Drake's history, the university is taking major steps to ensure every student an exceptional learning and living environment.
Drake’s mission is to provide an exceptional learning environment that prepares students for meaningful personal lives, professional accomplishments, and responsible global citizenship. The Drake experience is distinguished by collaborative learning among students, faculty, and staff and by the integration of the liberal arts and sciences with professional preparation.
Randy Ball and Tom Lichtenberg, who have a combined 39 years of collegiate coaching experience, including 25 years as college head coaches, have joined the Drake University football staff. Matt Jeter has been promoted to defensive coordinator.
Drake's College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences recently introduced what it is hoped will become a tradition with pharmacy alumni and students entering their first year of the professional program after completing two years of pre-pharmacy studies.
