Hello, alumni, supporters and friends of CEOE,
I have now been at the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment for nearly a year, and I have been reflecting on all I've learned about the University of Delaware and the people I have met whose lives have been shaped by this college.
One thing I have noticed is that the unique history of this college has led to our alumni feeling more connected to individual departments or even old incarnations of the school. But being an alum isn't about the time you spent at UD in the past.
It's about being a part of our vibrant community today.
Our geologists are advancing knowledge of processes shaping the earth while they create new ways of teaching to reach new audiences. Our marine scientists study the ocean from the seafloor to the air-sea interchange. Our climate scientists in geography provide a vital perspective of atmospheric impacts. And our social scientists, both the policy experts and the human geographers, allow us to consider how the environment studied by our physical scientists affects society and vice versa. We are truly all different aspects of one endeavor: understanding our world.
So I encourage you to engage with CEOE as it is today, Get to know colleagues from different disciplines and different class years. Two great opportunities are coming up this fall for you to reconnect, so please mark Oct. 7 on your calendar for
and Oct. 27 for Homecoming. I hope to see you at both!
