David Finkel, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of "Thank You for Your Service," will visit UD to discuss his book with freshmen as part of the 2014 First Year Common Reader Program.

End the silence

More than 300 members of the UD community, including students, faculty, staff and alumni, gathered on the steps of Memorial Hall and the nearby North Green on Sept. 19 to voice their concerns regarding sexual harassment and assault.

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.
