'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

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.
