2023 Alumni Attitude Survey Results
We Asked, You Answered
Staying connected with alumni and providing them with an enriching, lifelong experience is paramount to UD. Once a Blue Hen, always a Blue Hen—the strength of the UD network is everlasting.
To ensure that UD is doing this effectively, we needed input directly from the source—YOU, our alumni! In early 2023, the University of Delaware conducted an alumni attitude survey that provided insight on how you feel about UD and its alumni events and communications. Here are the results.
