First class

UD Police marked the completion of its inaugural Community Police Academy with a special ceremony for the graduates.

In memoriam

UD professors and students remember Alexis DeFrancesco as a diligent student who liked to sit in the front row and as an outgoing and caring friend.

One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before the age of 18, yet only one in 10 abused children reaches out for help.

“We need your commitment to this issue,” a program representative said. “Our children need our help. They can be empowered with awareness and choice, but the real responsibility for protecting our children must be shouldered by adults.”

The University supports this training by offering employees on-site, facilitator-led sessions.

The sessions are approximately three hours in length and will take place in 413 Academy Street, Room 261, on the following days and times:

March 24 – (1-4 p.m.)

April 23 – (1-4 p.m.)

May 7 – (1-4 p.m.)

May 21 – (9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.)

Those who have any questions about the training should send an email message to employeetraining@udel.edu.
