FYI Stories

Two-factor authentication

Since two-factor authentication provides more security than a simple password, UD IT recommends that it be used whenever it's offered.

Faculty climate survey

The NSF ADVANCE grant team at UD has shared the results of a faculty climate survey on topics including promotion and tenure, evaluation, merit, workload, family-friendly policies, mentoring, and career satisfaction.

Newark Police responded to the scene with assistance from UD Police and a Delaware State Police canine team. A canine track was conducted but was unsuccessful.

Police describe the suspect as a white male with an average build, approximately 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a black shirt, black pants, black cap and a black mask concealing his face.
