Students are the heart and soul of UD—we flourish only when they can discover the true potential of their creativity, curiosity and capability, regardless of economic situation, financial need or the uncertainties life may bring.
As we continue to cultivate global citizens with expertise and practical skills, donor support allows us to constantly enhance the student experience, creating opportunities, programs and resources that help each of them realize their greatest achievements.

From the iconic Green and traditionally Georgian halls to the high-tech labs and collaborative spaces, our campus is full of places where students learn, faculty grows, community gathers and memories are made.
What students learn is inexorably linked to where they learn it. Updated labs, innovative equipment, expanded space will all enhance the student and faculty experience at UD and we can’t do it alone. Philanthropic support will help us renovate existing buildings as well as create new spaces.
