Diversity & Inclusion

Graduate Students involved in the STEM program at the University of Delaware include Natalee Smith; Samantha Brannick; Robert Panish; Ampofo Darko; Srinivasa Rao Chintala.


The Office of Graduate & Professional Education supports the CGS Resolution “Building An Inclusive Graduate Community: A Statement of Principles”  Toward that end, our office supports the development and success of historically underrepresented graduate students at the University of Delaware. Within these pages you will learn how UD enhances the graduate school experience for all by facilitating diversity of thought, background and perspective amongst its graduate community. We welcome all to actively engage in the support of an inclusive graduate community.

Office of Graduate & Professional Education Action Steps:

  • Expand participation of underrepresented groups
  • Develop effective, innovative, and better coordinated recruitment
  • Create targeted retention strategies
  • Offer new and expanding incentive and scholarship programs
