It is not some static thing. Excellence, in its truest form, lives and breathes every day. It inspires everything it touches. It transcends time and discipline and takes us beyond the boundaries of imagination.
Excellence at Drake can be seen in the success of our graduates, the beauty of our campus and the quality of our programs and people.
Excellence at Drake can be seen at every turn — whether it is an exceptional Law School, cutting-edge technology in a newly renovated science laboratory, a student earning the coveted Rhodes Scholarship or the running of the internationally renowned Drake Relays for more than a century. Excellence is rooted in the fabric of our rich history and is the reason we are viewed as one of the finest master’s universities in the country.
Excellence in Teaching — in the 2010 U.S.News & World Report rankings, Drake had the third highest score for academic quality among 572 master’s institutions in the nation.
Excellence in Leading — our mock trial team recently won first place at the Harvard Crimson Classic.
Excellence in Achieving — the Associated Collegiate Press awarded our student-produced Drake Magazine the ACP Pacemaker Award for Magazine Excellence.
