myDSU Scholarship Drive

Delaware State University is excited to be achieving new heights in fundraising that directly impact students.  With the support of the DSU Alumni Association (DSUAA), we were able to assist 45 deserving students to complete this spring semester, including 18 seniors. Members of the Class of 2011 are also aiming to leave a legacy for students still working toward their degrees. During the next 90 days, through the myDSU scholarship drive, you have the chance to support the dreams of deserving DSU students and ensure they can return to campus in the fall and continue making their marks while completing their degrees. If you have given already to the annual fund, Thank You, and please consider making an additional contribution. If you have not yet contributed, now is the time!

DSU Suggestion Form

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

The ad hoc Promotion and Tenure Policy and Procedure Committee—mutually established by the Provost, the AAUP DSU Chapter President, and the Chair of the Faculty Senate—has been charged with the task of drawing conclusions and making recommendations for improvements to the current promotion and tenure process at Delaware State University. The expectation is that the substance of such improvement comes from the faculty (tenured and tenure track), Chairs and Deans; thus, this committee solicits suggestions for improvements to current promotion and tenure policy and procedures.

Mandatory 2014 Commencement Meeting and Rehearsal

All prospective graduates are required to attend the May Commencement rehearsal that will be held on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 9 a.m. until approximately 10:30 a.m. in Alumni Stadium. The rehearsal enables DSU officials to establish the assembly marching and seating order, and share with the students all pertinent Commencement ceremony information. At the beginning of the rehearsal, the names of all prospective graduates who have satisfied all requirements will be distributed. Those students whose names are not on the list will be required to immediately report to the Office of Records and Registration. Attendance at the Commencement rehearsal is mandatory. University officials will also announce the order of the Commencement ceremony and provide all other pertinent details. DSU wants your Commencement to be a memorable one, and graduation candidates play a major role by attending the rehearsal to find out what will take place. Students who fail to participate in the rehearsal will be placed at the end of the assembly line for the processional march on Commencement day.
