'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

Green roofs, or thin vegetated roofs, are increasingly used as an emerging solution to reduce energy costs, lengthen roof lifespans, and protect water quality.

Starting in 2008, an interdisciplinary team at UD worked to design and install the University’s first green roof over the classroom wing of the Colburn Lab.

The project was completed this summer and Chad Nelson, assistant professor of landscape design, will share the history of the project and will offer insights for groups interested in pursuing other green roof projects.
