The Preface reads in part:
"The University of Delaware had its corporate origin in the Act of the General Assembly of Delaware, passed February 5, 1833, incorporating ""Newark College."" The name of the College so incorporated has through the years undergone certain changes and now is known as the University of Delaware."
Par. 5102 states the Purpose as:
"The leading object of the University shall be to promote the liberal and practical education of persons of all classes in the several pursuits and professions in life through the teaching of classical, scientific and agricultural subjects, the mechanical arts, military tactics, and such other subjects as are related to and will contribute to the achievement of the objectives of a Land-Grant, State University."
The Board of Trustees of the University consists of twenty-eight members, together with four ex-officio members - the Governor of the State, the President of the University, the Master of the State Grange, and the President of the State Board of Education.
The Bylaws confer "the entire control and management of the affairs of the University" to the Board of Trustees, including its seven colleges and other units. The Board has fiduciary responsibility to the University, elects the president, establishes the degrees awarded and approves an annual comprehensive financial plan.
President Patrick Harker (in part) from the May 2008 Executuce Summary:
This strategic plan, which charts our "Path to Prominence," is part of a continuing University conversation.
As the planning and implementation process now rolls out across the University at the college, school, and unit level, this dialogue will guide our steps, offering fresh ideas and approaches. While on our path, our destination remains constant: to fulfill the mission of the University and to be recognized around the world as one of the great public institutions of higher education in America.
