'Lamb watch'

Several UD Department of Animal and Food Sciences students spent the beginning of the spring semester on "lamb watch."

Building leadership skills

The Blue Hen Leadership Program, the three-tiered student leadership certification program sponsored by the University Student Centers, completed its second annual alternate spring break trip March 31-April 5.

Panel topics ranged from developing a resume that references clubs and organizations with ties to the LGBTQ community to gender transitioning in the workplace.

Panelists shared that employment discrimination based on sexual orientation is only outlawed in 21 states and the District of Columbia, but not throughout the U.S., which should be considered and has implications regarding location.

Students left with a breadth of valuable information including how to research LGBTQ friendly companies through the Corporate Equality Index.
