UD Updates 
Impact on the University community and academics

The Center for Global Programs and Services (CGPS) brings together key enterprises to support the University's global initiative and campus internationalization efforts. As founders of the nation's first study abroad program, we inspire and facilitate the pursuit of global understanding by developing inclusive programs of study, opportunities for experiential learning and strategic partnerships. We welcome students and scholars from around the globe and foster their success through advising and cross-cultural engagement. Building upon Delaware’s history as a leader in international education, CGPS is proud to continue our legacy of innovation in the 21st century and beyond.

#UDWinter Journeys


This is an exciting time for the many Blue Hens traveling the globe to study away from their home country for the first time. Pursuing an immersive global education in a new academic environment, some are international students arriving in the U.S. and some are leaving the U.S. to go explore the world. 

Others are exploring new opportunities to get involved and connected closer to home. 

Although there are plenty of challenges for all of us, CGPS will continue to focus on the best opportunities for a global experience at UD, wherever our journeys take us this season. 


#BlueHens are #UDAbroad this #UDWinter

Hear from Blue Hens all over the world this Winter Session! They're sharing their photos and stories from Dubai to Greece to British Virgin Islands to Hawaii - and everywhere in between!
