Our distinguished faculty includes internationally known authors, scientists and artists. State-of-the-art facilities support UD’s academic, research and service activities.

Professors here are "helpful and available outside of the classroom," "invested in their classes," and "truly want students to succeed." The school's "many support systems and safety nets" ensure that students never get lost in the crowd. "Those who are falling behind have many resources they can refer to," says an early childhood education major. Students admit that teaching here can be "hit or miss" in terms of the quality of lectures, so "It is usually good to get in touch with other students and find out what professors are good or bad." Many professors conduct research or are involved with organizations around campus, and "they're always willing to let students join them or get more involved," as well.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
