Moving in

Members of the Class of 2018 will move in on Saturday, Aug. 23, with other new and returning students to follow. Many UD offices and departments will offer special hours and services through the weekend.

Gas card policy

University of Delaware Transportation Services has announced a new policy for the Motor Pool, which will no longer issue gas fuel cards for use in refueling vehicles that are being rented from the Motor Pool.

“In the work we do on campus, we strive for building allies across groups,” says Paul Hengesteg, OEI program coordinator. “However, that might be a big leap for people if they haven’t been given basic information first, especially around topics that can be confusing and sensitive like sexual orientation and gender identity.”

The workshop will provide attendees with clarity of multitude of identities that comprise the LGBTQQIAA community. These identities, represented by a letter, are often referred to colloquially as “alphabet soup,” which is how the title of the workshop was born. Alternatively, if someone knows about the LGBTQ community, the workshop offers an opportunity to refresh the memory.
