School Description

Provided by Drew University

Drew University's highest priority is excellence in liberal education in a changing world environment. This priority guides the planning, implementing, and evaluating of the programs and activities of the University as well as the stewardship of its varied resources.

Excellence in liberal education at Drew requires scholarly, creative faculty who teach effectively and intellectually prepared students who want to learn. This excellence emphasizes the interrelatedness of learning in undergraduate, graduate and theological schools and promotes intellectual rigor and responsible citizenship, while preparing individuals for significant contributions to society.

Drew University endeavors to create a distinctive environment for liberal education. Characteristics of this environment are an ethos of curiosity and achievement within an intentionally intimate community of learning which emphasizes close student-faculty relationships and collegiality. This ethos includes respect for individuality and appreciation of diversity. Drew University places special attention on the ongoing evaluation and improvement of teaching and learning, the uses of technology, and the global context of knowledge.

Drew University has a total enrollment of 2,506 students. (1,608 in the College of Liberal Arts, 587 in the Caspersen School and 361 in the Theological School.) The Theological and Caspersen schools offer degrees at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels, while the College annually confers B.A. degrees in 29 different disciplines.

Located in the picturesque and friendly borough of Madison, New Jersey, Drew's 186 acre, wooded campus is within walking distance of the Madison train station, which offers direct service to Midtown Manhattan's New York Penn Station. The university is known for its small class sizes and personal attention to students. Ninety-four percent of Drew's full-time faculty members hold terminal degrees in their areas of expertise, which makes high-quality mentorship the hallmark of a Drew education.

The campus is a short 10-minute walk from the Madison train station, which provides direct access to the cultural, educational and professional offerings of Manhattan via New Jersey Transit's Midtown Direct Service. The university takes advantage of its proximity to New York by integrating field trips and off-campus study opportunities into the curriculum.
