The College of Arts and Sciences has an obligation to address critical societal problems, be a premier destination for arts and humanities programming, serve as a central forum for discussions of public affairs and engage the community and our alumni through public programming. Our faculty and students will exemplify global citizenship and pursue multiple forms of public service, engagement and scholarship. Using new social media and instructional technologies, we will further inspire public and virtual audiences.
Serve Delaware first. Apply the intellectual, analytical, technological and creative resources of the college to develop solutions for state and local problems. Continue the long tradition of contracting with state agencies, the state legislature and state-based nonprofits, as well as partnering with cultural institutions to address pressing contemporary problems. Expand translational and community-based research opportunities in addition to public partnerships.
Develop future and current educators. Collaborate with other colleges in the University, as well as national and international partners, to train and mentor the next generation of secondary level and specialist teachers. Enhance content-rich professional development programs to strengthen teaching in Delaware and the region. Support pre-service and in-service programs with state-of-the-art instructional technology.
Extend cultural programming on campus and beyond. Enhance the profile of our leading visual and performing arts programming to advance creative expression and cultural understanding and to attract high-achieving students. Engage lifelong learners and UD alumni through public programming across the disciplines, public lecture series, courses and showcase events.
Enhance global impact. Use the expertise of faculty, students, staff and our community partners to address "environmental sustainability, social justice and the alleviation of human suffering," the global problems identified in the University's strategic plan. Expand exposure of faculty and students by sponsoring international symposia, supporting professional travel and developing global partnerships. Collaborate with the Institute for Global Studies to encourage study abroad, strengthen the Area Studies programs and expand international research.
