Campus Stories

Summer camps

Young people in the community can enrich their summers through a wide variety of experiences at camps scheduled this year at the University of Delaware.

The career connection

The Career Services Center is set to launch the 2016 Internship and Job Drive, which seeks to inspire the University of Delaware's network of alumni, parents and friends to become more actively engaged in helping UD students get full-time positions at their workplaces.

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.
