Working at UD News and Information

Feb. 19, 2020

Welcome to Working at UD

Several departments at UD have formed a collaboration to provide employees a more cohesive presentation of benefits and services and to increase engagement. The partnership will be reflected in this monthly email, previously called HR News & Information. In addition, a new web page, Working at UD, brings together information on campus events, courses, benefits and employee stories for a “one-stop” experience for faculty and staff.
