Community Partners

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Drury University to engage our students, faculty, and staff in the community! At the core of Drury University’s mission and vision is a commitment to educating and developing “students to become engaged, ethical and compassionate citizens for servant leadership in communities characterized by change, complexity and global interdependence."

Our community partners are essential to fulfilling this vision and the office of Community Outreach and Leadership Development is committed to forming mutually beneficial relationships that not only engage our students and enrich the Drury community, but also support our community partners in fulfilling their missions and meeting community needs.
