The Power of Ones.
Welcome to Drake’s next great era.
Since our founding in 1881, we’ve established a reputation as exceptional thinkers and doers—dedicated to transforming lives and strengthening communities. Now we stand at the crossroads of our past and our potential.
One person cannot overcome all the challenges we face as a community, nation, and world. But when we move the focus from the singular to the plural—from looking for the one to becoming The Ones—everything changes. The ones are brave and bold, and they are called to lead. As Bulldogs from many backgrounds and generations, it’s up to us to come together to be the ones who unleash the full power of what a university is capable of, at a time when our country and world need us most.
Today, Drake University officially launched The Ones: Drake’s Campaign for the Brave & Bold with an inspiring virtual celebration of the power of our Bulldog community. Join us in being among the ones who will secure a bright future for the generations who will follow in our footsteps.
