Education

The University of Delaware (UD) is a state-assisted, privately governed institution that was founded in 1743. It offers 3 associate programs, 147 bachelor’s programs, 119 master's programs, 54 doctoral programs, and 15 dual graduate programs through seven colleges and in collaboration with more than 70 research centers. UD's 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. 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.

The University of Connecticut (UConn) is a public research university in Connecticut. Known as a Public Ivy,[3] UConn was founded in 1881 and is a Land Grant and Sea Grant college & member of the Space Grant Consortium. The institution serves more than 30,000 students on its six campuses, including more than 8,000 graduate students in multiple programs.[4] UConn's main campus is in Storrs, Connecticut. The university's president is Susan Herbst.[5] UConn is one of the founding institutions of the Hartford, Connecticut/Springfield, Massachusetts regional economic and cultural partnership alliance known as New England's Knowledge Corridor. UConn is a member of Universitas 21, a global network of 24 research-intensive universities, who work together to foster global citizenship and institutional innovation through research-inspired teaching and learning, student mobility, connecting students and staff, and promote advocacy for internationalisation.[6] UConn is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
