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.

If you own an Apple device, UD Police recommend signing up for "Find My iPhone," which has been helpful in locating stolen items. 

Following are tips to help prevent theft:

• Do not leave valuables unattended for any amount of time.

• Do not leave valuables out in plain view.

• Lock your office door when you leave for any amount of time.

• Pay attention to your surroundings.

• Report all suspicious activity or suspicious persons to UD Police immediately.
