 Regional Advisory Boards

Regional Advisory Boards (RABs) are one of the many ways that Drake works to meet our alumni where they are today. RABs are made up of alumni that work together to engage other alumni in a community or city through different types of outreach and programming.

Currently Drake has active RABs in Central Iowa, Chicago, Denver, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.
