Join UDance

UDance was built on the belief that students like you have the ability to end childhood cancer. On a foundation of hope, unity, perseverance, and passion, we aid families with childhood cancer nationwide with financial and emotional support, as well as fund cutting edge research studies. To date, our UDance community has raised over $13 million for our beneficiary, The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation and the fight against childhood cancer. We celebrate our yearlong fundraising efforts annually at our 12-hour dance marathon, and we’d love for you to join our community! But this isn’t just about fundraising, this is also an opportunity for students to join a community and form relationships.

Sign up to join your organization, or as an individual, and join our community of thousands of students here at UD. All are also welcome to get involved through the COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND NATURAL RESOURCES team page by clicking the registration link. If you are a freshman interested in fundraising or getting more involved, you can join FRESHMEN FOR THE KIDS to start fundraising with your peers.

In addition, we highly encourage you to SIGN UP FOR A PROGRAM. This is simply a guided goal to help you stay on track and will allow us to give you cool fundraising tips throughout the year.

Dear UD Student,

  • Are you trying to navigate the complex world of virtual learning and working?
  • Are you trying to figure out how to get a job that allows you to be your authentic female self?
  • Do you feel like no matter what you learn in the classroom, you still feel unprepared for the work world?

  • Do you want to connect with other female students that have similar experiences to yours?

As a female student at UD, you are invited to attend all sessions:  

Ascend:  Empowering Female Students for Success

The WLI, in collaboration with the Lerner College Women in Business RSO has developed the ASCEND series to address these issues.  Our certificate program includes 7 interactive zoom webinars, and will require attendance at each session, along with a short reflection assignment to obtain a certificate.  Due to limited space, students much complete an application for this program, and will be accepted on a first come basis. For more information, email Amy Stengel: astengel@udel.edu.

Our single session option allows students to register for one session at a time to any and all sessions that are of interest.  Due to limited space – registration for each individual session is required, and session will be closed once filled.  

These 75 minute online sessions are set up to address these issues. Each session will
teach critical leadership skills, introducing participants to successful female executives to serve as advisors and role models, and invite you to build connections with other female students with similar experiences.

Each of these online sessions will include a 20-minute talk from a successful female executive and a facilitated breakout discussion where students meet one another and deepen their learning and connection.

The Biden Institute Student Advisory Council

The Biden Institute is launching a Student Advisory Council (SAC) to help identify, participate in, and promote programming across campus.
Students on the council will gain meaningful leadership experience in politics and public service and assist with outreach to diverse and specific student populations, supporting the work of the Biden Institute programming team.
The Biden Institute complements the work students do in the classroom by giving them first-hand opportunities to engage with activists, politicians, and policy practitioners from a wide range of ideologies. In the past we’ve hosted events with U.S. Senator Cory Booker, 2016 Presidential Candidate John Kasich, and former Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates to name a few. We have an exciting Fall 2020 lineup of events — and want you to help us plan even more!
