The Global Initiative

The University of Delaware community will foster knowledge and awareness of the economic, environmental, political, cultural, and social issues that face the world—and the skills to address them.

The University of Delaware must both prepare students to be contributing citizens of the world and serve as a “citizen university” in a global society. As a community, we will foster knowledge and awareness of the economic, environmental, political, cultural, and social issues that face the world—and the skills to address them.

Our global initiative will embrace the diverse regions and people of the greater United States as well as countries and cultures around the world. Facilitating communication and collaboration, through language study, the use of technology, and sharing of the human experience is central to achieving understanding. Therefore, global experience, both on our campus and beyond, is critical to our success. We will leverage and increase our academic ties with leading institutions around the world, both in education and research.
