UD starts with you.

At UD, you're never just a number. Who you are as an individual is as valued as your academic achievement. So you'll find a supportive educational environment where your unique aspirations and goals are recognized. You'll find faculty and staff who know who you are and highly personalized attention in classes that average just 15 students. And you'll find an engaging community where your thoughts, interests, and individuality are celebrated.
