DEM awarded Hispanic Diversity Champion of 2023

The Division of Enrollment Management is proud to announce that we have earned the esteemed "Hispanic Diversity Champion" award at the 2023 Delaware Hispanic Awards.

The Delaware Hispanic Awards is the leading award ceremony for the Latino community in the state of Delaware. It recognizes individuals and organizations that are going the extra mile to serve the Hispanic Delawareans. Nominees and winners were chosen by the community during the voting period, making these awards a genuine reflection of community sentiment. The red-carpet ceremony event was held in November 2023 right after Hispanic Heritage Month.

Earning the recognition of "Hispanic Diversity Champion" is a source of immense pride for the Division of Enrollment Management, as it reflects our dedication to providing effective higher educational support while remaining attuned to the unique needs of our students.

We express our sincere gratitude to all the staff that make up the Division, which also includes the department of Admissions, Registrar, and Student Financial Services. Their outstanding performance made this fine achievement possible.

Among Univeristy of Delaware alumni are three signers of the Declaration of Independence, a signer of the U.S. Constitution, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, a Tony Award-winning choreographer, a First Lady of the United States, and the 46th President of the United States.

The private academy from which UD grew was founded in 1743, making it one of the oldest in the nation, and UD was chartered as an institution of higher learning in 1833.  Historian John Munroe touted UD's original class was "possibly the most distinguished in terms of the later achievements of its members, taken as a whole, of any class in any school in America."  Those first students would go on to become statesmen, doctors, merchants, and scholars.
