Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

The Women's Caucus board leads the activities of the caucus. Board elections will take place during the spring general meeting. Those who are interested in running for the board should contact Shannon Lennon-Edwards at slennon@udel.edu directly. Nominations are due April 5. Length of service on the board is two years.

In addition, the Women’s Caucus will hold its second annual spring social event, open to the entire University community, from 4-6 p.m., Tuesday, May 14, at Bayard Sharp Hall. The Torch Award, given annually to a woman who has “carried the torch for women's equality,” will be presented during a short ceremony at the event. In 2012, the award was presented to Anne M. Boylan, professor of history. Light refreshments will be served.
