The future depends on vision, it requires imagining a new and better world and making that world flourish. It depends on students with drive and ambition taking on new challenges and seeing new opportunities. The future depends on you. At the University of Delaware, we welcome problem solvers and artists and dreamers. We welcome you. Join us.
Design a new tomorrow
If you can imagine it, we’ll help you build it, giving you the knowledge to bring your ideas to life and the resources to build upon your vision. In our labs, students have used computer models to fight cancer. In the Venture Development Center, student entrepreneurs used 3D technology to help firefighters battle blazes. In the MakerGym, engineers designed a biodegradable bicycle. What will you make?
Keep our community safe
If the health crisis that upended every country on the globe taught us one thing, it’s that there’s still work to be done. And the students and faculty at UD are doing it. They’re studying ways to get medicines to patients quicker; they’re examining the molecular structure of viruses; they’re designing new treatments and new ways to serve people in crisis.
Making a just world
A pessimist might say: there’s always been injustice and always will be. At UD, we’re not pessimists. Where we see injustice, large and small, we ask, what can we do to change it? What can we do to make our society more equitable? The answers our students and faculty have come up with might surprise you.
Protect the environment
The problems our environment faces are large. That’s why it takes all of us at UD to chip in. We need students in every field to bring their unique skills to the table. We need policy analysts to craft smart legislation, writers and artists to spread the word, teachers to inform the next generation and entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses.
