Campus Stories

From graduates, faculty

As it neared time for the processional to open the University of Delaware Commencement ceremonies, graduating students and faculty members shared their feelings about what the event means to them.

Doctoral hooding

It was a day of triumph, cheers and collective relief as more than 160 students from 21 nations participated in the University of Delaware's Doctoral Hooding Convocation held Friday morning on The Green.

The goal of the program is to support new modules in existing or planned courses, in which the modules introduce or explore the following general themes:

  • Research ethics;
  • Environmental ethics or policy;
  • Science policy;
  • Bioethics; and
  • Other ethical, social or legal issues relevant to the subject matter of the course.

It is expected that faculty proposals will adapt these themes to the learning goals of the particular course. The proposal text is limited to one page in length, and the current syllabus for the course should be attached.

The deadline for applications is May 30. For further information, or to apply, contact SEPP Director Tom Powers at or 302-831-3229.
