About the University of Delaware

The University of Delaware is a state-assisted, privately governed institution with a strong tradition of distinguished scholarship, research, teaching and service. UD is one of the nation’s oldest universities, beginning as a small private academy in 1743. Three of its original 10 students went on to sign the Declaration of Independence.

Today UD is a Land Grant, Sea Grant and Space Grant institution that the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies as having “very high research activity”—a designation accorded to fewer than 3 percent of U.S. colleges and universities.
