Giving today to shape tomorrow

The University of Delaware will launch its annual Faculty and Staff Campaign on May 2, seeking participation from more than 1,200 employees to have a lasting impact on the UD community.

In Memoriam

Jeraldine "Jerry" Merlyn Shanessy Trabant, the widow of University of Delaware President Emeritus E. Arthur Trabant, died May 2. She was 92.

UD employees who receive University benefits are recognized for years of service starting at 5 years and at each 5-year interval thereafter. The awardee names are generated in the spring based on service dates for the current fiscal year, which runs July 1 to June 30.  

The University thanks recipients for their service to UD with the ability to select a gift from collections designed especially for them.  This year’s awardees will receive an email from MTM Recognition in mid-March with a link to UD’s online catalog. Employees who have limited access to email will receive brochures mailed to their homes in mid-March as well.

This year’s Service Award Luncheon for employees celebrating 5, 10 and 15 years will be held on March 20; email invitations went out earlier this week.

This year’s Service Award and Retirement Dinner will be held on May 16. The dinner is held to honor retirees and employees celebrating 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years of service. Each retiree and employee is encouraged to bring a guest to this event. Invitations will be sent in mid-April.

All questions regarding Service Awards should be directed to Ellen Lepine at or 831-0269.
