Thriving research centers and institutes at the University of Delaware, reflect the diversity and rigor of UD's research interests and activity and our commitment to improving the quality of life in Delaware and beyond.
To an extent
matched by few peer institutions, the University of Delaware fulfills
the Kellogg Commission’s model of an “engaged university” —
an institution that makes a comprehensive and sustained contribution
to the improvement of the communities it serves. UD's research centers
increasingly are becoming important state, national, and international
assets. Our faculty attract significant research sponsorship for projects
and programs of student and public benefit, including support for federally
funded national centers of excellence.
