Open forums

Candidates for the position of senior vice provost for graduate and professional education at UD will participate in open forums with the campus community the first week in December.

The ringing of the carillon was initiated by Megan FitzGerald, vice president of University affairs in the StUDent Government Association, working with IT University Media Services. 

“We identified the ringing of the University’s bells as a simple way to allow members of the UD community to pause in memory,” FitzGerald said.
