History

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. UD’s Community Engagement Initiative builds on that tradition by focusing on what makes every community strong:

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!
