Community Engagement Initiative
The University of Delaware (UD) has a long tradition of applying knowledge and creativity to the critical challenges facing communities — in Delaware and around the world. In 2015, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching designated UD as a community engaged university. At the request of Provost Domenico Grasso, UD planned, developed, and launched the Community Engagement Initiative to focus on what makes every community strong:
- Improving public education, health, and environmental quality
- Encouraging economic development
- Expanding arts and cultural programs that enrich quality of life
This initiative aims to expand the University’s role in cultivating active citizens through real partnerships that impact civic needs. Join us as we grow with new partnerships, work with new communities, and embark on research that will change the areas where we live, work and play. Join us!
