FYI Stories

Two-factor authentication

Since two-factor authentication provides more security than a simple password, UD IT recommends that it be used whenever it's offered.

Faculty climate survey

The NSF ADVANCE grant team at UD has shared the results of a faculty climate survey on topics including promotion and tenure, evaluation, merit, workload, family-friendly policies, mentoring, and career satisfaction.

A new service is now available for departments that would like to arrange to have 10-15 minute chair massages by a licensed massage therapist at their workplaces. Therapeutic massage helps lower stress, improves mental clarity and provides a relaxing break in the day. More information is at the HealthyU website.

  • Be Well UDel, an eight-week wellness challenge for individuals and teams;
  • Employee-only group fitness classes held during the noon hour and in the evening in several locations around campus;
  • Lite Lunch workshops, offering a variety of eight wellness experiences over the lunch hour (included in the Be Well UDel challenge, or can be purchased separately;
