Winter Session 2021

The University of Delaware’s 2021 Winter Session registration is now underway for students who want to earn credits in a short period of time between the fall and spring semesters. Students should log in to their personal UDSIS webpage to initiate the registration process.

The condensed, five-week format of Winter Session makes it an ideal time for students to gain credits needed for on-time degree completion. Many students also use the term to get ahead on their academic path or explore new interests.

UD NURSING STUDENTS HELP WITH CAMPUS TESTING

The COVID-19 surveillance testing underway this fall at UD is part of an ongoing effort to keep students, faculty and staff safe, but it also gives our CHS students the chance to get valuable community health experience. Volunteers help with crowd control, provide testing education and assessment and also help ensure participants are maintaining social distancing protocols.

RESEARCH SPOTLIGHT

Greg Hicks appointed associate vice president for clinical and translational research

“I really love being a clinical researcher and helping people — and helping to start other people’s research careers, just as my mentors inspired me,” said Hicks, who currently is deputy dean of UD’s College of Health Sciences and former chair of its physical therapy program, ranked number-one in the nation. “The better we all are at doing that, at helping others to find their passion and succeed as translational researchers, the more positive change we can make for patients within the health care system.”
