2013 UD Day of Service

Each year, the Offices of Residence Life and Alumni Relations brings UD alumni and students together in the spirit of service to support nonprofits and special causes. This day supports the University of Delaware's mission statement regarding our alumni located around the world: "University graduates are prepared to contribute to a global society that requires leaders with creativity, integrity and a dedication to service."

All UD Day of Service activities are free to join. Some may have additional costs associated with the event (i.e. parking fees, cash bar) and some may have an age limit of 18+ for safety purposes.

If you have questions, please contact alumnet@udel.edu.
