Letter from the Provost - March 13, 2014

Dear Students:

Earlier today, you received an email from Dean of Students José-Luis Riera regarding St. Patrick's Day. I want to reiterate what Dean Riera said about prioritizing safety and good decision-making this weekend.

I'm so very proud of this University's students, and I know you're equally proud to be enrolled at an institution whose reputation is as impressive as ours is.

All of us are obliged to protect this reputation and the community we call home. This weekend is no exception.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Irresponsible behavior that has occurred on this and other campuses will not be tolerated. I know we're better than that; we are the University of Delaware.

Please take care of yourselves and your fellow classmates over the next few days, and commit to upholding the values that make UD so special.
Have fun and be safe!


Domenico Grasso
