The Faculty Prespective

I have greatly enjoyed the times I have worked with the Department of Physics, the Premedical Program and the Office of the Dean. These roles have allowed me to truly appreciate the quality of our students. I have always found that UD provides a rich environment for student-faculty interactions in the science disciplines as well as in pre-health care.
