UD becomes Defense Acquisition
After a detailed application process, the University of
Delaware has been approved to participate in the
Defense Acquisition University (DAU) Equivalency Program. The DAU offers
courses across all U.S. military units to strengthen workforce capabilities in
acquisitions-related skill areas, and leadership at all levels. The DAU spans all
career stages and emphasizes professional development through continuing
education for military and civilian personnel.
The Equivalent Provider (EP) program allows UD to now submit courses for
DAU approval that would fulfill continuing education requirements for the
Department of Defense workforce. With this move, UD continues to strengthen
its partnership with the U.S. Army at Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) in
Maryland by making it more convenient for APG personnel to enroll in University of Delaware courses. UD joins other universities such as University
of Virginia and Georgia Tech serving U.S. military installations.
Next, UD will identify and propose course offerings to be considered as
"equivalent products" for the DAU. These could include certificates,
undergraduate and graduate courses, and graduate programs.
