    学校简介

    特拉华大学(University of Delaware,简称UD或UDel)特拉华大学是美国最古老的一流大学之一,特拉华大学的历史可以追溯到1743年,刘易斯长老会的希望佛朗西斯.爱丽丝在新伦敦地区开办学校的请愿活动。1743年11月24号本杰明富兰克林的宾夕法尼亚公报也刊载了学校建立的消息。学校初始是一所私立的小型学术机构,直到1833年由于政府的拨款和赠地学校转为公立大学。

    现如今特拉华大学不但是接受公共基金,拥有独立的土地,海洋,空间和国家支持的科研机构,而且接受私人的捐助,现在特拉华大学的私人捐助已经高达9.62亿美金。而且根据卡内基教育基金会于公布的大学分类,被归类为特高研究型大学(very high research activity university)。

    该校现有16,000名本科生,3,500名研究生。特拉华大学在全美以及国际学术界享有盛誉,被《美国新闻周刊》列为全美排第68(2010年最新排名),在公立大学中排名前28名。特拉华大学有诸多学科,其中商科、化工、化学、生物化学等专业最为著名,主要原因就是这里历史上就是美国化学以及制药工业的中心。2006年,特拉华大学的工程学院全美排名11。学生选修最多的学科,依次是社会科学(21%)、商科管理(13%)、教育(9%)、健康科学(7%)、工程(6%)。学校的 20,000 名本科生和研究生中,有 1,000 名国际学生,来自 92 个不同国家和地区。
    特拉华大学于1743年创立,位于特拉华州的西北部,校区面积很大。学校奖(助)学金充足。妇女研究生占四成以上。校园非常美丽,到处是翠绿的草皮和绿树成荫的人行小道,路的西边是乔治王朝式的教研大楼和管理大楼。 

    【校训】 “Knowledge is the light of the mind.” ----知识即心灵之光。

    【学校声誉】美国新闻与世界报道》评为一级国家级研究型大学,学术声誉全美第68。

    【地理位置】
    大学位于特拉华州纽瓦克市,校园距威尔明顿市12英里,离费城30英里,是一座拥有 30,000 人的宁静、安全、友善的大学城。纽华克乘坐汽车或火车到华盛顿特区和纽约市不过两小时车程(170 公里),距费城和巴尔的摩(80公里)一小时车程。附近大西洋以及宾夕法尼亚州波可诺山脉的旅游区也为学生提供了丰富的夏季和冬季活动地点。
    由于特拉华州地理位置优越,位于东海岸,地处华盛顿特区和纽约市之间,托马斯·杰斐逊曾经其形容为“明珠”,。另外,特拉华州是最早加入美国联邦的州,所以又有第一州(The First State)这个称呼。特拉华州是全美唯一没有销售税的州。目前,财富五百家公司其中超过一半是在特拉华州注册成立的,而三分之一的纽约证券交易所和美国证券交易所上市公司亦在特拉华州注册成立。

    Welcome to the University of Delaware
    The University of Delaware 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 alumni tell our story of achievement, from our first class, which included three signers of the Declaration of Independence and one signer of the U.S. Constitution, to the more than 154,000 living Blue Hens who are making vital contributions to the world. Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his wife, Jill, are both UD alumni.
    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. UD ranks among the nation’s top 100 universities in federal R&D support for science and engineering.
    A state-assisted, privately governed institution, UD offers a broad range of degree programs: 3 associate programs, 147 bachelor’s programs, 119 master's programs, 54 doctoral programs, and 15 dual graduate programs through our seven colleges and in collaboration with more than 70 research centers. Our student body encompasses more than 17,000 undergraduates, more than 3,600 graduate students and nearly 800 students in professional and continuing studies from across the country and around the globe.
    Our distinguished faculty includes internationally known authors, scientists and artists, among them a Nobel laureate, Guggenheim and Fulbright fellows, and members of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
    State-of-the-art facilities support UD's academic and public service activities. Our 146-foot coastal research vessel, Hugh R. Sharp—the most advanced in the U.S.—helps scientists across the region explore the sea. World-class figure skaters train at our High Performance Figure Skating Center. Partnerships with Nemours/A. I. du Pont Hospital for Children, Christiana Care and Thomas Jefferson University; the U.S. Army; Winterthur; Longwood Gardens and Hagley Museum offer unparalleled experiences in health sciences, defense research, art conservation, horticulture and history. The University is now transforming a 272-acre parcel, the site of a former auto assembly plant, into the Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus.
    Distinguished speaker series, symposia, 21 intercollegiate athletics programs and numerous intramural and club sports, more than 300 student organizations, concerts, exhibits and other arts and cultural activities enrich campus life.
    Thomas Jefferson once described Delaware as a "jewel" among states due to its strategic location on the East Coast, halfway between Washington, D.C., and New York City. Today, however, the location of Delaware's flagship university increasingly is invoked as "halfway between Los Angeles and London."
    In addition to our Georgian-inspired main campus in Newark, Del., UD has locations across the state--in Wilmington, Dover, Georgetown and Lewes. A thriving study-abroad program and expanding international partnerships further enhance our students' education as global citizens.
