Textbook Library Exchange

If the textbook you’re looking for isn’t in our library, you can apply for a MEC Textbook Scholarship to cover the cost of the textbook. At the end of the semester, students are asked to return the book to MEC so that it can be added to the Textbook Exchange Library so that other students can have access to it. This sustainable communal effort makes the UD education more financially accessible and equitable. 

Academic Coaching

MEC offers 1:1 inclusive academic coaching centered on advancing your holistic wellbeing and academic success at UD. At MEC we focus on developing the Intellectual, Spiritual, Emotional, Social, Physical, Financial, and Environmental aspects of wellbeing in order to support your academic journey at UD.

Space for Healing and Growth

MEC and the Counseling Center host a weekly open forum where students interact with the purposes of (1) examining obstacles to authentic living and (2) identifying choices and daily practices that can help to move toward healing, strength and growth.

Students of color have the unique burden of race-related stress and/or trauma which can add to the stressors of being in college. This space offers students of color a place to process the challenges of tolerating stress and managing difficult or painful emotional experiences while also building resilience, validating and empowering oneself and others.

This space was created to give students a safe place to explore the intersections of identities and how they play a role in their experience of mental wellness while navigating campus community and climate.
