In founding Drexel University,Philadelphia financier and philanthropist Anthony J.Drexel launched a tradition of innovation.Mr. Drexel envisioned an institution of higher learning uniquely suited to the needs of a rapidly growing industrial society and of the young men and women seeking their place in it — core values that continue to guide the University in its modern era.Mr.Drexels vision was officially realized in 1891 with the establishment of the Drexel Institute of Art,Science and Industry.Originally a non-degree-granting institution,Drexel began conferring the bachelor of science degree in 1914,when its 18 departments were organized into four schools.In 1927,the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania granted Drexel the privilege to confer the master of science degree,and in 1965,the doctor of philosophy degree.
