The Academy of Natural Sciences.

The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University is the oldest natural history museum in North America. Founded in 1812, the museum is known for both its extraordinary collections of natural specimens and its active research faculty. Center support allowed the Academy to upgrade its financial accounting software, giving staff members a more efficient tool for monitoring their internal and external activity.
