FYI Stories

Giving today to shape tomorrow

The University of Delaware will launch its annual Faculty and Staff Campaign on May 2, seeking participation from more than 1,200 employees to have a lasting impact on the UD community.

Writing Fellows

Faculty members who would like classroom assistance from a writing fellow next semester can apply now.

Members of the campus community should not call UD Police so that telephone lines there can remain open for emergency calls.

Personal safety

Members of the University community are reminded that safety is UD's highest priority. Faculty, staff and students should not put themselves at risk, and employees who expect difficulty traveling should contact their supervisors.  

Faculty members unable to hold class should notify their departmental offices, and students unable to attend class should contact their professors. In such cases, UD policy states that students should be allowed to make up missed class time and canceled classes should be rescheduled when possible. 

The University's policy is reprinted below:

Faculty and students are not expected to take unnecessary risks to meet their teaching and learning obligations due to inclement weather. When classes have not been canceled, it is a matter of personal judgment whether traveling to campus is hazardous. Faculty should notify their departmental offices when weather precludes them from meeting their teaching obligations; similarly, students should notify their professors when inclement weather precludes them from class attendance. In such cases, students should be allowed to make up missed class time and, whenever possible, canceled classes should be rescheduled.
