COLLEGES

The University’s seven colleges offer students diverse opportunities, innovative programs, life-altering experiences and so much more.

UD’s greatest achievements stem from the hard work students, faculty and staff do every day at the department and unit level. From inspiring performances, creative problem solving and environmental solutions to innovative business methods, intricate projects and cutting-edge approaches, the learning in our colleges is unparalleled.

Support for the colleges, departments and programs through scholarships, graduate fellowships, research funds and more, makes a meaningful impact on our students’ experiences and expands our reach into the world beyond campus.

All of the colleges have a number of priorities that will become a reality through the Delaware First campaign. Below are just a few examples:
