Dragons First: Collective Success @ Drexel University
Welcome to the Collective Success Network! Thank you for signing up as a student!
The Collective Success Network is building a platform in Philadelphia for professionals and companies to support and mentor college students who may also be the first generation in their family to attend college to achieve their academic and career aspirations.
This initiative is a collaboration between professionals and students building and leading campus chapters at Drexel University (Dragons First), Temple University (Temple First), and the University of Pennsylvania (Collective Success @ Penn).
Regardless of whether there is a campus chapter at your university, you can still participate in Collective Success Intercollegiate Programs.
Joining this network will give you access to a social support network of diverse caring professionals who have relevant life experience to help you navigate the path forward. Many of the professional volunteers were once lower-income, first-generation college students.
This sign-up form will take less than 5 minutes to complete.
