New Turner Jazz Center will inspire jazz faculty, students and listeners for years to come
The Patty and Fred Turner Center was completed just in time for Drake's Jazz Ensemble Two to move its Dec. 7 concert from the Performing Arts Hall to the new facility. The free, public concert drew such a large crowd that some audience members sat on .
When CEOs, legislators, Iowa’s governor, and other dignitaries gathered in Drake University’s Cowles Library on Dec. 6, 2013, they were celebrating more than just the dedication of a new archive to preserve the past.
Drake's mission is to provide an exceptional learning environment that prepares students for meaningful personal lives, professional accomplishments, and responsible global citizenship. The Drake experience is distinguished by collaborative learning among students, faculty, and staff and by the integration of the liberal arts and sciences with professional preparation.
