JUNE 7 - 11 2021

In recognition of the incredible contributions University of Delaware employees have made to support campus operations, student success and our community, the Working at UD Collaborative is sponsoring a variety of virtual and in-person activities from June 7th-11th. This week is meant to honor all that you have accomplished through a challenging year. We hope that you will celebrate yourself, your colleagues and what it means to be a Blue Hen.

All in-person events are free and open to faculty and staff. If you will be in attendance, please complete the Daily Health Check before arrival.
