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.
Whether working one-on-one with students or addressing a lecture hall filled with more than 200 of them, Drake University Professor of Marketing Chip Miller is making sure his expertise has a lasting impact on many students for years to come.
Each year in its main stage season, Drake Theatre typically selects one student from multiple applicants to direct a full-length production -- a chance offered by very few universities. To set itself apart even more, this year instead of one show, Drake Theatre presented three student-directed plays.
