University of Delaware

An Engaged Community

UD offers many events for the public to enjoy, including athletics, theater, music concerts, free lectures and much more. To learn more about the events, please visit the UD Calendar.


The University of Delaware is grateful for the involvement and participation of “friends” of UD who show their care and appreciation by making a contribution. Friends are involved in all parts of UD—academics, arts, horticulture and athletics, to name a few.

There is a place for everyone at the University of Delaware. Making a gift is one way of strengthening your interest and involvement. Cumulative annual gifts of $1,000 or more entitle you for membership in the Delaware Diamonds Society, providing you with insider information and opportunities to interact with the University’s leaders and other generous benefactors.

For information on Delaware Diamonds Society and for help connecting to your favorite UD program or project, email Ruth Rosenberg at or call 302-831-2104.
