Summer Session 2013
The UD Honors Program, Edge, encourages motivated high school students who have completed their sophomore or junior year to expand their educational experience through college-level study at the University. During the five-week program, students live in supervised residence halls, take freshmen-level courses taught by University faculty, and participate in a variety of social and cultural educational activities, including out-of-town trips. Students select courses from a curriculum of traditional and innovative offerings. On successful completion of the courses, they earn regular University credit, which many colleges and universities accept as transfer credit. Apply by May 1.
For more information please call the UD Honors Program Edge office at (302) 831-6560,
or see www.udel.edu/edge
Honors courses are open to students in the Honors Program (UDHP) whose grade point indices are 3.0 or higher. During the initial registration period, only UDHP students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher will be registered for Honors courses. Once spring semester grades are posted, students who are not in the Honors Program and have grade point indices of 3.0 or higher should contact the Honors Program office at 831-1195 to request permission to register for an Honors course. Please contact the Honors Program office directly with any Honors course registration issues or questions. Further information on the UDHP is available at the Honors Program office, 186 South College Ave., 831-1195 and online at
Graduate Higher Education Teaching Certification
The Higher Education Teaching Certification program is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness of TAs while at the University and to provide systematic preparation for all aspects of academic careers. The non-credit, optional program is open to all graduate students who intend to become faculty. The online program is supplemented with on-campus seminars. To receive the teaching certification, graduate students must complete coursework in four pedagogical and professional development content areas: Learning (UNIV-600), Pedagogy (UNIV-601), Faculty Roles (UNIV-602) and Academic Job Search (UNIV-603). In addition, the participants must be observed and receive reflective feedback by a faculty mentor in the discipline and document their teaching effectiveness via a portfolio. Certification is awarded upon completion of all program aspects and is included in the participant's official transcript. Participants must have one semester of teaching experience prior to starting the program and include in their application a statement of support from a faculty member in their discipline. Graduate students apply for admission directly to the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning.
or the Program Coordinator at 831-2027.
The Office of Service-Learning (OSL) provides students and faculty a central location for information about service-learning
and community-based research opportunities. The OSL administers the Service-Learning Scholars program, which enables students to participate in individual faculty-guided service-learning projects during the ten weeks of summer.

University faculty accept undergraduates as their assistants or junior members of their research teams in the belief that unusually well-motivated students should be given the chance, while they are still beginners, to see and have a part in what is happening at the frontiers of knowledge.
The Undergraduate Research Program helps interested students and faculty to meet and discuss apprenticeship possibilities. Most students earn academic credit for the apprenticeships; qualified work-study students may earn grant money doing research. Scholar Stipends are available for full-time summer undergraduate research. Each scholar will receive a stipend of $3000. Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships are also available for students who wish to combine research with summer coursework or other summer commitments. Projects are available in all University departments and areas of research and are available on the web at:
