For the Record provides information about recent professional activities of University of Delaware faculty, staff, students and alumni.

UD is sponsoring a demonstration booth under the central M&T Bank Grandstand area to highlight the research, educational and public service initiatives occurring throughout the state under the leadership of Delaware's flagship university.

"Participation in the Delaware State Fair provides an excellent opportunity to talk about the many outstanding programs offered by the University of Delaware, not only on the Newark campus but also in Kent and Sussex counties," said Rick Armitage, director of community and state government relations.

Representatives of a variety of UD units will participate, including the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), Student Centers, the Water Resources Agency, the Center for Disabilities Studies and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, which offers programs in all three counties.

Continuing its longstanding presence at the fair will be CANR’s Cooperative Extension and 4-H programs, located in the Commodities Building and the Centre ice arena respectively. 4-H has been a part of the Delaware State Fair since its inception and according to fair officials is still one of the fair’s largest draws.

Also, both the UDairy Creamery and the University of Delaware Bookstore will be providing coupons.
