University of Delaware students, faculty and staff are invited to join in the winter festivities at UD Night at Yuletide at Winterthur from 4:30-8:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Before joining the U.S. Senate in 2001, Carper had served in the U.S. House of Representatives and as the 78th governor of Delaware.

Carper is a UD alumnus, having received a master of business administration degree in 1973.

Now in its 11th year, the speaker series brings an esteemed cadre of legislators and experts to campus to address pressing issues and trends in public policy.

This year’s series focuses on “Leadership, Service and Policy,” and U.S. Rep. John Carney, an alumnus of the master's in public administration program, delivered the first lecture on Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Edward Freel, a policy scientist in the Institute for Public Administration, calls the series “an opportunity to meet, hear from and interact with practitioners and academics in a range of different issue areas.”
