2021 Impact Report

Figures of Hope

Fiscal year 2020-2021

 

When I looked at the numbers reflected below, they told me an inspiring story about how much our alumni, friends, and the entire campus community truly care about our beloved University.  That we all helped to achieve this during a year filled with so much uncertainty is, in a word, amazing. I’m deeply grateful to call UD my home, and I am humbled by the generosity and the active participation of so many in our Flyer family. In the Marianist spirit, we are a true community.

During the year’s commencement, I congratulated our graduates for acing the test that life threw at them. They supported each other through times that no other UD class has experienced.  And they were also supported by you. Whether you made a donation or attended a digital event, your actions provided hope and inspiration — and offered a living example of what it means to be a Flyer for life.
