The Office of Development and Alumni Relations is seeking the assistance of UD employees during Alumni Weekend, which will take place June 5-7.

Housing application changes

In order to manage the occupancy of University of Delaware housing so that all second-year students who wish to live on campus for 2016-17 have the greatest opportunity to do so, the housing application process for returning and upper-division students will change significantly beginning in September 2015.

The keynote session presented by Bob Gonyea, associate director of Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research, on “The Use of Student Engagement Data in the Assessment of Liberal Learning” and the subsequent workshop will be of interest to all those who teach at UD.

Gonyea’s sessions will provide an opportunity to explore what student engagement results tell us about best practices in teaching and learning.

The afternoon program will complement the themes raised by Gonyea, as UD faculty share recent perspectives from their diverse disciplines.

UD faculty who will present at the institute include:

  • John Barshaw, director, Higher Education Consortia;
  • Alex Brown and Anu Sivaraman, Department of Business Administration;
  • Phil Duker, Department of Music;
  • David Ames, director, Center for Historic Architecture and Design;
  • Nancy O’Laughlin and Mathieu Plourde, IT Academic Technology Services; and
  • Joe Harris, Department of English.

Registration for the event is now open.
