Join the new CANR Sustainability Committee!

The newly-formed CANR Sustainability Committee is actively recruiting two undergraduate and two graduate student representatives to join a small group of college faculty and staff working toward a greener future. We are committed to pursuing excellence in interdisciplinary scholarship, becoming better stewards of our campus and forging a prosperous future for all. Members should expect to attend two meetings per month (currently scheduled 2:00-3:00 p.m. every other Friday) as we draft action plans that will outline environmentally-conscious decision-making at CANR for years to come. Join the CANR Sustainability Committee today! Interested students should contact committee co-chairs Chris Williams at ckwillia@udel.edu and Jed Horwitt at jhorwitt@udel.edu with a short statement about why you are interested in joining the committee and a copy of your resume.

Apply to Become a UD Student Alumni Ambassador

Do you love UD? Do you love to share that passion with others? Do you want to build up your resume? Or expand your network with important alumni? Then the University of Delaware Student Alumni Ambassadors is the perfect organization for you!

The Student Alumni Ambassadors are a group of driven students who work under the Office of Development and Alumni Relations (DAR) to foster relationships between students and alumni. We encourage school spirit through promoting the UD Bucket List and participating in events such as I <3 UD Day, Homecoming Spirit Day, and both the Twilight Induction and the Twilight Toast! UDSAAs also educate students on the importance of giving back to UD, along with our many opportunities for professional development. From dancing on The Green while decked out in blue and gold or networking with our outstanding alumni, this club has something to offer everyone.

Becoming an SAA includes gaining access to many unique campus events that most students do not have access to. These events are perfect ways to practice networking skills and make connections for after graduation. Additionally, SAAs get officially branded SAA gear, including a polo shirt, quarter zip fleece lined sweatshirt, and a Blue and Gold striped rugby shirt! Furthermore, SAA is an excellent opportunity to make new friends from all over the University, and there is even a $1000 scholarship open only to SAAs!

If joining this awesome organization sounds like a great opportunity, you are encouraged to fill out an application here or for more information see the flyer attached or check out our website. If you have any questions about the application process or about SAA in general, feel free to reach out to our VP of Membership, Brian Chansky (bchansky@udel.edu) or our President, Malini Gulati (malinig@udel.edu). We really hope you apply!
