Welcome to UD



The University of Delaware (UD) has a great tradition of excellence, from our roots extending back to a small private academy started in 1743, to the research-intensive, technologically advanced institution of today.

Our story of achievement begins with our very first class, which included three signers of the Declaration of Independence and one signer of the U.S. Constitution. The University received its charter from the State of Delaware in 1833 and was designated one of the nation’s historic Land Grant colleges in 1867. Today, UD is a Land Grant, Sea Grant and Space Grant institution. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies UD as a research university with very high research activity—a designation accorded less than 3 percent of U.S. colleges and universities.

Our contributions to the Catalyst for Learning site are documented here. We hope you will take some time to learn about our University, the campus, its community, the leadership team and our unique project.

Our Project:

The University of Delaware’s “Programmatic Teaching, Learning and Assessment (TLA) ePortfolio” project is a collaborative initiative between the Center for Teaching & Assessment of Learning (CTAL) and Academic Technology Services (ATS) within Information Technology. UD uses a structured Sakai open source portfolio matrix model to develop and implement a reflective teaching, learning and assessment ePortfolio system that supports the University’s strategic initiative of strengthening student engagement and providing documentation of student learning for departments and academic programs.
