Parents and Family Engagement
When you're the parent, family or supporter of a Blue Hen, you're part of our family, too. We’re here to help you stay informed, engaged and connected to the University and other UD parents. Here, you will find the information, resources and support needed to help your Blue Hen thrive at UD.
Parents and Family Weekend 2023

- Access important campus news and deadlines
- Sign up to receive personalized newsletters and announcements
