First and Forward
On October 7, 2021, the University boldly extended Delaware First: The Campaign for the University of Delaware with an ambitious goal to raise $1 billion—seizing the opportunity for generosity to further fuel growth, innovation and discovery—for our campus, our students and our world!
Bolstered by an unwavering foundation of generosity and loyal support, together we will transform the lives of those who will transform the world.
Redefining Student Success
From health and wellbeing and interdisciplinary academics to professional development and a central hub for student programs, a multi-faceted approach to the student experience is crucial.
OUR FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES
Student scholarships, graduate fellowships, faculty support, transformational programs, improved facilities, enhanced athletics and cutting-edge research will create extraordinary student experiences while expanding UD’s impact on the world.
