At DRBU, you’ll find a community culture that nurtures meaningful connections, lasting friendships, and an atmosphere of inclusivity. Our tight-knit community is what makes DRBU a warm and supportive place to study and grow.


For a small school, we have a striking amount of diversity. You’ll study alongside students from all over the world and all walks of life. This diversity contributes to the richness of our education and community life.

Code of Conduct

Built on the ideals of respect, humility, and kindness, all students, staff and faculty follow a code of conduct while on campus.

It feels like I’m part of a family. Every single person I have come across has changed me in some way, shape, or form.

Holistic Mentorship

Academic Freedom

Academic freedom is a central tenet at DRBU. Students are free, and explicitly encouraged, to examine and consider all the views they encounter, including their own.
