FYI Stories

'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.

HealthyU in 2015

The HealthyU Employee Wellness program provides resources for University of Delaware faculty and staff to address their fitness-related resolutions in the New Year.

The first partner agency highlighted during the UD countdown is Delaware Kids Connection, a mentoring program that matches middle school students with trained community mentors. It is designed to improve academic achievement, link positive school experiences to the student’s family, provide job and career planning concepts, and promote parent and community involvement. Delaware Kids Connection seeks volunteer mentors to commit to helping a child improve his or her life and encourage them to reach for their goals.
