In Fall 2020, Drake announced the creation of John Dee Bright College. Named after “Johnny” Bright, ED’52, the acclaimed Drake football player and educator, Bright College offers two full-time, two-year associate degrees. This distinctive learning experience focuses on problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication, preparing students to thrive in the world beyond college.
Bright College serves qualified learners who may otherwise face significant barriers to attending Drake, whether financial, cultural, or related to work and family. Your support during All In helps us remove those barriers, increasing access to Bright College's unique and innovative learning environment for everyone.
