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.

Facilitated by experts in the field -- Phyllis Guinivan, Terri Hancharick and Annalisa Ekbladh from UD’s Center for Disabilities Studies -- the two-part workshop will explore:

  • Stressors and life events that can complicate work/life balance; 
  • How perceptions of disability can impact outcomes for the family; 
  • The rights that children with disabilities and special health care needs have related to education and health care;
  • Supports and resources in the community; and
  • How to achieve balance and harmony with the family.

Each session will take place from noon-1 p.m. on Wednesdays, Feb. 13, and 20, at 413 Academy Street, Room 261.
