Engaging With Our Community

Engaged, dedicated, loyal and enthusiastic are some of the adjectives that describe the University of Delaware community.

The University plays an integral role in the city of Newark and the state of Delaware, working to better the community with service projects, research benefiting local agencies and industries, and public outreach throughout the state.

Among the University's greatest strengths is its long and vibrant tradition of public service. In a recent national survey, 75 percent of UD students indicated that they participated in community service by the time they were seniors. In 2015, UD was recognized with the Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

UD is the place to hear world-renowned speakers, enjoy first-rate music and theatre, cheer on Fightin' Blue Hens teams and see compelling exhibits, all of which complement the rich academic experience.
