“The Ones marks the most important comprehensive campaign in Drake’s history. Drake University is a premier institution with an essential mission and compelling inspiration, though we are not immune to the external pressures impacting higher education. The Ones empowers us to take control of our own destiny and thrive. Our future growth and success depend on moving forward with ingenuity and boldness.
This campaign reimagines Drake’s commitment to our students and society with ambitious priorities that meet pressing challenges with innovative solutions. The Ones will enable Drake to transform lives and strengthen communities locally and around the world. You can be among the ones to propel Drake into our next great era. Your generosity will secure our position as a leader in affecting positive change through education, research, and service. Join us."
