Global Stories

Irish conference

UD early childhood education major Rebecca Vitelli recently attended the Irish Association of Teachers in Special Education conference in Dublin.

Civic leadership

Twenty-three college students from 16 different countries came to UD as part of a Middle East Partnership Initiative program focused on civic leadership.

Nancy Brickhouse, deputy provost, and James Richards, vice provost for graduate and professional education, will lead the meetings. 

Among the topics to be addressed will be 

• professional master’s level and post-baccalaureate degree programs that are most appropriate for online delivery; 

• online classes and certificate programs that would especially benefit UD’s growing global audiences;

• building international collaborations to bring students from abroad to the UD campus during winter and summer sessions; and

• expanding opportunities for UD faculty to teach overseas and for UD students to take courses at campuses overseas. 

In addition, a summary of the review of potential vendors for the campus-wide delivery of online courses will be presented.
