UD’s Commitment to Diversity

Diversity is a core value and guiding principle for the University of Delaware’s educational mission. In 2017, we were presented the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine–the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education–for our efforts enhancing diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our campus.
