A Message to UD Alumni & Friends
Our thoughts are with you and your families as our country faces the unprecedented public health situation of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. For the health and well-being of our Blue Hen family, all UD-sponsored alumni and donor events are canceled through April 30.
Many of our alumni, parents and friends have asked how they can help during this unprecedented time for the University community. Here, we provide just a few ways you can show your love for UD.
Give to the Student Crisis Fund
The University of Delaware's Student Crisis Fund supports eligible students who face a serious financial hardship due to unanticipated circumstances. During this time of national crisis, the disruption of traditional classes and residential living presents significant challenges for some students – from the need to offset income from lost part-time jobs to unforeseen medical costs to housing and food insecurity to emergency transportation and travel costs. The Student Crisis Fund was made for this moment. Your gift will help provide time-sensitive support to our most vulnerable students in need. Learn More.
Now more than ever, our students need advice to navigate these uncertain times and internships, jobs and virtual experiences to propel their careers after UD. You can help!
Students have been displaced from jobs or are seeking out opportunities to gain professional experience through internships, jobs and gigs. The UD Career Center & Lerner Career Services Center are ready to work with you to recruit and hire talented Blue Hens for a variety of roles:
- Immediate Remote Work (Gigs, Internships & Other Opportunities)
- Summer Internships
- Full-time, Part-time & Other Roles
Blue Hens are seeking advice and guidance on navigating their career and securing opportunities during these uncertain times. Consider making yourself available through UD’s primary networking sites for those in need of support:
- UD Career Acceleration Network (UD CAN): UD CAN is an easy to use platform with a simple mission: to connect Blue Hens from across the world with one another for career advice, networking and professional opportunities.
- UD Alumni Page on LinkedIn: UD actively encourages students and alumni to seek out fellow Blue Hens through Linkedin.
Blue Hen Brain Break
During times like these, everyone could use a little pick-me-up. Whether you need a distraction, some background music or to feel connected to fellow Blue Hens and your alma mater, we’ve got you covered. Sometimes, all you need is a few minutes to do something just for yourself.
Groom those feathers, Blue Hens.
