Campus Stories

Top colleges

Forbes magazine has ranked UD 29th in its listing of top public universities based on what students get out of college.

Partnership for change

Understanding how to effectively address student alcohol use, especially the increasingly dangerous trends associated with binge drinking, has challenged virtually every educational institution across the country, including the University of Delaware.

This year’s institute features two keynote speakers and a variety of presentations by UD faculty, staff and students.

The breakfast keynote features Lindsey Lyons, the assistant director of the Center for Sustainability Education at Dickinson College. Before coming to Dickinson College, Lyons developed natural resource conservation and sustainability initiatives in higher education for Oregon State University and Wilson College of Pennsylvania.

Emily Hunter will be featured as the afternoon keynote. Hunter is an environmental advocacy journalist who reports from the frontlines of environmental issues and activist movements. She has worked as the eco-correspondent for MTV News Canada and the eco-blogger for This magazine. Hunter’s first book, The Next Eco-Warriors, is an insider’s look at the new wave of environmental activism.

Breakout program sessions will feature discussion topics and innovations from UD and regional institutions. Faculty, staff and students at all levels are encouraged to attend. Attendees are encouraged to register if they plan to attend Lyons’ morning session, as breakfast refreshments will be provided.
