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.

After the keynote address, a faculty panel dedicated to exploring the intersection between diversity and public scholarship will engage the University community in meaningful dialogue. 

A working lunch will follow this interactive panel, and small groups of participants will be encouraged to discuss diversity and public engagement at UD.
