Nov. 5: 'Your Newark' luncheon

The International Caucus of the University of Delaware will host a "Your Newark" luncheon with Andrew Haines, Newark's deputy city manager, at 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 5.

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.
