Archives Exhibit: Researching Diversity at Drexel
Submitted on August 10, 2011 - 3:28PM
Drexel University Archives presents a new exhibition, 'Researching Diversity at Drexel,' opening August 10, 2011. The exhibition contains documents from the University Archives and essays written by students in Professor Sharon Brubaker's English 103 classes that explore issues of race, gender and cultural diversity at Drexel.
Drexel opened its doors in 1891 as a technical school dedicated to educating men and women students of all races, religions, and backgrounds. However, the history of diversity at Drexel, as at any institution, is complex. Were students of color welcome in Drexel's fraternity and sorority scene? How were international students treated? Which departments had women students and faculty when Drexel was founded, and how did the distribution of women change over time? These are some of the questions that this exhibition addresses.

Location: W. W. Hagerty Library, 33rd & Market Streets, Philadelphia, PA
