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.

The DENIN Student Programs Committee, now in its third year, is a small group of specially selected volunteers from across campus who assist DENIN in reaching out to students.

Members of the Student Programs Committee serve as:

  • Ambassadors — representing DENIN at campus-wide events;
  • A focus group — providing input to DENIN staff about what students are interested in and concerned about;
  • Event planners — carrying out events for students that further the educational objectives of DENIN;
  • Promoters — assisting in promoting DENIN events, especially to the student population; and
  • Activists — helping to create a sustainable campus by communicating scientific information effectively.

“We’re looking for people from any major who are passionate about promoting environmental awareness and have some innovative ideas about how we can involve more students in meaningful environmental activities,” says junior Becky Bronstein, the group’s current chair.

She notes that students who join the group may remain members until their graduation if they choose.

Questions and completed application forms should be addressed to Bronstein at
