ROLF VAN DE KERKHOF 2ND SEASON AT DELAWARE • FONTY’S HOGESCHOOL ‘96

Rolf van de Kerkhof will begin his second season at the helm of the Blue Hen field hockey squad in 2012. Hired in December, 2010, he became just the sixth head coach in the 41-year history of the program. Van de Kerkhof came to Newark, Del. following a 12-year stint as an assistant and head coach at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. He became the Spartans assistant in 1999 before being named the head coach in 2006. His six-year head coaching record now stands at 83-44 (.653). Van de Kerkhof (pronounced “van-duh-kirk-off”) took over the reigns from Carol Miller, who announced her retirement following the 2010 season. He led his first Blue Hen team to a 9-10 record and a berth in the Colonial Athletic Association quarterfinals. Delaware earned votes in the National Field Hocke Coaches Association Top 20 poll five times during the season. Four of the losses came by just one goal, including one in overtime. Van de Kerkhof, a native of The Netherlands, led his 2010 Michigan State team to a 15-6 overall record and an NCAA Championship first round appearance. The Spartans finished fourth in the Big Ten Conference, earning an at-large berth to the national tournament. He finished his 12th season at Michigan State, the last five as the head coach, following the 2010 campaign. Prior to being named the head coach in February 2006, he spent the previous seven seasons as the team’s top assistant coach. During his time at Michigan State, he helped the Spartans put together the most successful era of the program’s history. After leading the Spartans to both the Big Ten regular season and the Big Ten Tournament titles in 2009, van de Kerkhof was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year. The team finished the season with a record of 184 and reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament, where, after defeating Delaware, it fell to Virginia 32. Following the 2009 season, van de Kerkhof was also named the NFHCA West Regional Coach of the Year. MSU posted a 17-6 overall record in 2008, advancing to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament and hosting the first and second rounds at Ralph Young Field. The Spartans dispatched defending national champion North Carolina in the first round before falling in a 1-0 heartbreaker to Iowa in the quarterfinals. After an 8-12 mark in 2006, his 2007 team posted a 16-6 record and qualified for the NCAA Tournament, marking the fourth time in Michigan State history that the field hockey team had finished with 15 or more regular-season wins. He was an assistant with the program when the Spartans did the same in 2001, 2002, and 2004. His five-year record as head coach at Michigan State stood at 74-34, including an impressive 33-

10 mark over the last two years. As a Spartan assistant, van de Kerkhof helped the team to an overall record of 106-46 (.697), making two trips to the Final Four, and another two into the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. MSU's finest season came in 2002, with an overall record of 23-3 and a trip to the Final Four for the first time in program history. Van de Kerkhof brought more than 20 years of playing and coaching experience to the Blue Hens. In addition to the 12 years coaching at Michigan State, he spent 16 years playing field hockey, obtaining experience as a goalkeeper, defender, and midfielder. That experience easily translated into van de Kerkhof specializing in coaching the goalkeepers and the defensive unit at MSU. In August of 1999, he gave up his playing career to become a fulltime coach at the intercollegiate level. Prior to coaching and living in Lansing, Mich., van de Kerkhof coached the under-12, under-14, under-16, and under-18 boys and girls teams at various clubs while living in The Netherlands. He earned a degree in sports, economics and communication at the Fonty's Hogeschool in Tilburg, The Netherlands, in 1996 and also graduated with two official coaching degrees offered by the Royal Netherlands National Field Hockey Association in 1997 and 1998. During the 1998 Field Hockey World Cup in Utrecht, The Netherlands, van de Kerkhof was in charge of World Cup projects for Whise International Coaching Experts and Brabo International Hockey Equipment. Since 2000, van de Kerkhof has been involved in the Youth Olympic Development and Youth Elite Coaching programs, sponsored by the United States Field Hockey Association. In 2007 he served as the head coach of the US under-16 national team, which finished first in the runners-up pool in the HOD tournament in the Netherlands. In 2001, he served as an assistant coach with the under-16 U.S. National Team, coaching the squad to a bronze medal in the same tournament. In addition, van de Kerkhof has been coordinating the under-19 U.S. Futures Elite Hockey Tours to The Netherlands and served as head coach of the squads in the spring of 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006. He also assists in developmental programs for coaches across the nation and enjoys volunteering for charity organizations, including the Greg Gephart Fund in Houston, Texas and the Worthington Weed Whackers Program in Columbus, Ohio. He and his wife, Mary, have two sons, Sebastiaan and Mark.

Jestine Angelini, who recently enjoyed an All-American career at the University of Connecticut, was named assistant coach for the University of Delaware field hockey program in August, 2012. Angelini, a native of Boiling Springs, Pa. who earned her degree in sport management from Connecticut in May, 2012, joins head coach Rolf van de Kerkhof and assistant coach Laree Beans on the Blue Hens staff. “The Blue Hens field hockey family is privileged and very excited in welcoming Jestine to our program,” said van de Kerkhof. “Jestine can say that she has ‘been there and done that’ as a team captain and AllAmerican and as a member of teams that won Big East championships and advanced to the NCAA Final Four. She has a passion for coaching and sharing her playing experiences with our group. She is a young and upcoming coach and Laree (Beans) and myself are looking forward to assisting in her development as a member of our coaching staff and in her contributions to our program.” As a standout defender, Angelini led UConn to a 19-3 record, the Big East title, and a berth in the NCAA Tournament semifinals during the 2011 season.

Red-hot Monmouth won its fifth straight game. Monmouth (6-3) goalkeeper Teresa Mathews saved the first and defender Nicole Manziano kept one from the back of the cage on the second to send the game into overtime. In the extra session, Michelle Pieczynski had an open breakaway, broke right past a sliding Noelle Diana in goal, and slid home the game winner with 7:28 remaining in the first overtime. It was Piecynski’s third goal of the game. Piecynski started the scoring with the lone goal of the first half. Off a pass from Kimmy Baligian in the circle, Piecynski backhanded a shot from five yards out off the left post to beat Diana for the 1-0 lead. After the break, the Blue Hens got on the board off a penalty corner and a shot from Kelsey McKee. Amanda McCardell inserted the ball to a crouched Kayla Schweitzer. After the stick-stop by Schweitzer, McKee rocketed a shot past Mathews to knot the game at 1-1 with 23:57 remaining. The Hawks retook the lead in the 60th minute as Pieczynski dribbled down the left end line and slid home a shot to the near post. Delaware responded less than two minutes later however as Meredith Bonnell notched her third goal of the season by stuffing home a loose ball after a scramble in front of the cage. Kasey Prettyman took the initial shot that was saved to start the scramble and the ball wound up on Bonnell’s stick from eight yards out. But the Blue Hens couldn’t complete the comeback and the sevenon-seven overtime period went Monmouth’s way. Diana made eight saves in goal for the Blue Hens while Mathews stopped five for the Hawks. Manziano saved a pair of goals with two defensive saves on the night.

Sept. 24, 2011 Merion Station, Pa.

MERION STATION, Pa. - Trailing 4-0 with seven minutes and twenty-nine seconds remaining in regulation, Delaware stormed back to shock Saint Joseph’s, 5-4, at brand new Ellen Ryan Field. Scoreless through the first half, Saint Joseph’s (2-5) scored four goals in the first 17 minutes only to watch Delaware (5-4) steal the show on a day in which the Hawks christened Ryan Field. Kelsey McKee completed the monstrous comeback with 13 seconds remaining in the game, converting on a penalty stroke to take the lead. McKee took a shot off a corner that was saved, and after a scrum in front of the net, the referee signaled for a penalty stroke. The comeback started in the 62nd minute as Taylor Claybrook scored the Blue Hens’ first goal of the afternoon, beating Hawk goalkeeper Liz Messaros one-on-one. It was Claybrook’s first career goal and came with 7:29 left on the clock. Hannah Pepper put the thought of a comeback into the minds of the Blue Hens with her first goal of the season 2:54 later on a penalty corner. McKee blasted a shot from the top of the circle and the freshman-to-freshman connection was successful as Pepper tipped the ball past Messaros. The comeback became real less than two minutes later as Claybrook tallied her second goal of the game with 3:37 remaining in regulation. Amanda McCardell sent a long pass into the circle and Claybrook got her stick on it and redirected into the cage. Exactly two minutes later, with 1:37 on the clock, Melissa LeNoir knotted the game at 4-4 with her first goal of the season. The Blue Hens converted on another penalty corner, this time after Hannah Pepper took a shot with the tip in goal by LeNoir. In all, the Blue Hens had 16 penalty corners on the afternoon. One minute and 14 seconds later, McKee put home her second stroke of the year to remain perfect on the season, and give the Hens a 5-4 lead. The Blue Hens had 11 of their 16 penalty corners in the second half while the Hawks totaled seven on the afternoon. Delaware also outshot the home squad, 22-15. Noelle Diana moved to 5-4 on the season, making six saves. Messaros made nine saves for the day, seven in the second half. Delaware Saint Joseph’s

Wake Forest took advantage of almost every opportunity on the day as it outshot Delaware by a slim 17-13 margin while the Blue Hens held a 9-5 advantage in penalty corners. Ruhf posted seven saves while Delaware starter Noelle Diana stopped three shots and backup Sarah Scher turned away two Wake Forest attempts.

NEWARK, Del. - Despite being outshot and having to defend more penalty corners, Delaware defeated William & Mary, 3-1, in its Colonial Athletic Association opener at Rullo Stadium. Delaware (6-5, 1-0 CAA) was outshot 12-7 and William & Mary (6-3, 1-2 CAA) finished with more penalty corners by a 9-7 margin, but it was the Blue Hens who took advantage of their opportunities. Kasey Prettyman tallied two goals, including the game-winner in the 52nd minute. Both of her goals came as the result of being at the right place at the right time with her stick on the ground. Prettyman’s game-winner came off a perfect penalty corner setup as the entire defense shifted towards Kelsey McKee, who was set to

Oct. 7, 2011 Boston, Mass.

BOSTON, Mass. - Four first half goals were too much to overcome as Delaware fell to Northeastern, 4-2, in a Colonial Athletic Association matchup at Sweeney Field. Delaware (6-7, 1-2 CAA) dominated the stat sheet but could not keep Northeastern (8-5, 3-2 CAA) from out of the back of the cage in the first half, as the Blue Hens fell behind early and were unable to rally in the second half. The Blue Hens outshot the Huskies, 23-18, including an 11-7 advantage in the second half, but were only able to tally one goal in the second frame. The Hens also held an 8-5 advantage for the game in penalty corners. The Huskies’ Crystal Poland got the Huskies on the board first only 1:36 into the game. The senior’s 20th goal of the season came off a penalty corner as Carolyn Malloy and Nicky Graham picked up the assists. Kelsey McKee evened the match at one apiece 13 minutes into the contest, with the score coming off the Blue Hens’ first corner of the afternoon. It was the McKee’s team-leading seventh goal of the season with Carley Hecht and Kayla Schweitzer picking up the assists. Less than four minutes later, the Huskies reclaimed the lead as Pam Aldridge notched her fifth goal of the season. Malloy recorded her second assist on the goal while Poland tallied her fourth on the year. Before heading into the half, Northeastern put two more shots past Blue Hen goalkeeper Noelle Diana as both Lindsay Bennett and Graham scored their first goals of the season. Bennett’s came with 7:27 left on the clock while Graham’s mark was with 2:13 on the board. It seemed as if Delaware was poised to make a run in the second half as Nicole Onorato made it 4-2 just 1:17 into the second half on an unassisted goal. It was her second goal of the season. Delaware recorded 11 shots in the second half but were only able to beat NU goalkeeper Lizzie Priest that one time in the early going. The Blue Hens earned one penalty corner in the half and made Priest make six stops to earn the win. For the game, Priest recorded 11 saves while Diana made seven stops. Delaware Northeastern

Clare O’Malley made it a two-gal game with her first goal of the second half, but Delaware would not get closer. On the team’s second penalty corner of the second half, O’Malley collected a rebound off a shot from McKee in the middle of the circle and finished it off with 30:02 remaining in regulation. The Blue Hens recorded the next two shots of the game, but Kasey Prettyman sent her chance wide of the cage and McKee had a shot blocked in front off another penalty corner. After that point, the home squad took over the half and dominated the statistics. Hofstra went on to score three more goals as Kovar and Layne finished off their hat tricks.

NEWARK, Del. - Amanda McCardell (at right) scored twice as Delaware snapped its four-game losing streak in impressive fashion by posting a 3-0 shutout of rival Drexel at chilly Rullo Stadium. Kasey Prettyman scored the other goal for the Blue Hens, who improved to 7-9 overall and 2-3 in the Colonial Athletic Association. Drexel, which had defeated Delaware in five of the last six meetings, dropped to 10-6 overall and 3-3 in league play. The first half was tightly contested and did not feature many scoring opportunities for either squad, although a shot by the Blue Hens’ Nicole Onorato hit the crossbar 11:44 into the game. However Delaware would score the only goal it would need 9:49 into the second period. Onorato fired a shot from 10 yards out that was saved by Drexel goalkeeper Kim Chiarelli, but McCardell was there to knock home the rebound to put the Blue Hens ahead for good. Delaware maintained its one-goal cushion for the next 18 minutes, until a ball came to forward Tory Sharpless near the midfield line.

Blue Hen senior goalkeeper Noelle Diana, who was honored before the game along with fellow seniors Amanda McCardell and Kayla Schweitzer, picked up the win by posting six saves on the day. Delaware held a slim 12-10 advantage in shots and a 6-4 margin in penalty corners but made almost every one of them count. Carley Hecht added two assists on the day, upping her team-leading total to seven in that category, while Schweitzer also added an assist. The Hens struck early, going up 2-0 in the first 11 minutes of the game as McKee scored off a penalty corner as she took feeds from Schweitzer and Hecht and sent the ball past Towson goalkeeper Christina Siwiec (four saves) just 3:24 into the game. The Hens upped the lead to 2-0 just seven minutes later when Onorato rifled a shot into the cage from close range. Delaware increased the advantage to 3-0 with 5:41 left in the first half as O’Malley scored her second goal of the season, tipping in a long pass from the right side from Hecht. McKee’s team-high nine goals are the most for a Blue Hen freshman since former All-American Leah Geib netted 10 goals for the 2001 squad. McKee became the first Blue Hen to lead the squad in goals scored as a freshman since Melissa Hefner tied for the team lead with seven in 1993. Towson Delaware

RICHMOND, Va. - Delaware entered its regular season finale Sunday at Virginia Commonwealth knowing it needed a win to clinch a spot in the upcoming Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. The Blue Hens left little doubt that they deserved a spot in the sixteam field as Delaware scored all four of its goals in a span of 10 minutes in the second half on the way to a 4-1 season-extending victory over the host Rams. Delaware (9-10, 4-4 CAA) earned the No. 5 seed for the CAA Tournament, played at the Powhatan Sports Complex at regular season champion and national No. 1 Old Dominion. The Hens, who won CAA titles in 2004 and 2009, qualified for their sixth CAA Tournament appearance joining the league in 2002. Delaware got goals from four different players with Amanda McCardell recording a goal and an assist and Kelsey McKee dishing out two assists. Virginia Commonwealth (5-13, 2-6 CAA) ended its season with its second straight loss. Neither team could reach the back of the cage during the first half and for the first 20 minutes of the second stanza before a flurry of five goals in a span of just under 10 minutes decided the contest. The Hens finally broke the scoreless string when Toni Popinko tallied her first goal since Sept. 18 with an unassisted goal with 14:37 left

minute of the second half on a rocket shot from the top of the circle, but the Hens could not produce any more offense. JMU goalkeeper Margo Savage got a left pad on it, but the ball had enough force to continue past the line and into the back of the cage. The goal was the sixth of the year for Sharpless. Delaware continued to carry the momentum through the second half, out-shooting the Dukes, 8-6, and taking one more penalty corner, 3-2, in the final 35 minutes of play. For the game, the teams had the same number of shots, 14, but the Blue Hens held the advantage in corners, 8-7. Blue Hen goalkeeper Noelle Diana made two saves on the night as JMU only had four shots on goal. The Blue Hens tested Savage all night, forcing her to keep the Dukes in the game. Savage recorded six saves on the night, including four in the first half. Ysaline Nobels put James Madison on the board in the 13th minute of the game off a penalty corner. Dana Allaband and Jenna Taylor set up Nobels, who scored her fifth goal of the season. The Dukes went into the halftime break leading 1-0. After the Sharpless strike knotted the game at 1-1, Versfield tallied the game-winner on her third goal of the season as she scored off her own rebound. Diana was able to make two consecutive stops, but the rebound returned right to Versfield's stick and she slid one past Diana for the go-ahead goal. The loss ended the careers for three Blue Hens as Diana, Amanda McCardell, and Kayla Schweitzer played their final game at Delaware. Diana finished fifth all-time at Delaware in goalie saves, stopping 343 career shots. McCardell scored 17 career goals while adding five assists for 49 points. Schweitzer had a career year on the scoreboard, tallying a career-best seven assists on the season.

The Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences both athletically and academically. The CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 22 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2011-12, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 19 teams in 13 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2012. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 23 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, CAA COMMISSIONER football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & Tom Yeager field and wrestling. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2011-12, 24 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 51 student-athletes received All-America honors in 16 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past six years. Three CAA teams earned NCAA Tournament berths for the first time in 2011 as conference champion Old Dominion was joined by VCU and George Mason. VCU knocked off USC, Georgetown, Purdue, Florida State and top-seeded Kansas, while Mason defeated Villanova. In 2006, George Mason captured the nation’s imagination by becoming the first mid-major program since 1979 to reach the Final Four, posting victories over Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State and Connecticut along the way. At least five CAA teams have reached postseason play for the past four years. The CAA has also had great success in women’s basketball, with six teams making the postseason in 2011-12. Conference champion Delaware advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time and was ranked #7 in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll. James Madison beat two ACC and two Big East teams to reach the championship game of the WNIT. Drexel, Hofstra, UNCW and VCU joined the Dukes in the WNIT. Old Dominion, which won an NCAA-record 17 straight CAA titles from 1992-2008, boasts three national championships (1979, 1980, 1985) and was national runner-up in 1997. The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981 and ODU reached the national

semifinals in 2011. Four men’s soccer teams earned NCAA Tournament berths last season and James Madison became the seventh CAA team to reach the final 16 of the event in the past decade. Hofstra’s softball team won the Los Angeles Regional and became the first CAA squad to advance to the NCAA Super Regionals. At least two women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament in three of the past five seasons. William & Mary’s men’s cross country squad has made the NCAA Championship in 12 of the past 13 years. In the pool, George Mason’s Ashley Danner finished second in the 100 breaststroke and fifth in the 200 breaststroke at the 2012 NCAA Championship and received AllAmerica honors. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. On the track, Mason’s David Verburg placed fourth in the 400 meters at the NCAA Championship. The CAA has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in nine of the last 15 years and has had at least 12 players selected in the eight of the last 10 Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also boasts numerous All-Americans in lacrosse, tennis, golf, women’s lacrosse and wrestling. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs and granting visiting academic status to student-athletes traveling to an away contest so that they have access to libraries, academic resource centers and computer labs. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference on July 1, 2005.

CAMPUS LIFE The University of Delaware is a state-assisted, private institution of higher education that offers the best of public and private colleges. Delaware combines the personalized attention associated with small colleges with the diversified resources and programs usually found at major research universities. THE FACULTY The individuals most responsible for the attainment of academic excellence are members of the faculty. They have been attracted to Delaware from distinguished universities in America and around the world. Over 89 percent hold a terminal degree in their field. Though many professors have gained national and international prominence for research contributions in their disciplines, teaching remains a primary concern. At Delaware students are exposed to the most experienced professors throughout their academic career. THE UNDERGRADUATES Maintaining an exciting academic environment requires not only outstanding and dedicated professors, but talented students willing to accept academic challenge. By national standards, the University's student body is well qualified: the average SAT scores are well above the national average. Students entering the University typically average nearly 1,200 on the SAT. Over 70 percent maintained an average of B or better during their high school years; and the University attracts more national merit scholars then most comparable institutions and more than some Ivy League schools. MAJOR PROGRAMS With eight distinct undergraduate colleges offering 124 degree programs from which to choose, Delaware allows study in everything from accounting to agriculture, English to engineering, philosophy to physical therapy. The approved list of University courses totals over 4,000. Although University of Delaware class sizes can range from a minimum of one (independent study) to a lecture class of 300, more than 70 percent of class sections have fewer than 30 students. Classes are usually organized to include small-group discussions and the average class size is between 24 to 38 with the faculty-to-student ratio approximately 1 to 16. Students who choose Delaware are obviously impressed by what they find here. The average five-year graduation is almost 75 percent and the average retention rate for students from the freshman to the sophomore year is 89 percent. Additionally, approximately 90 percent of University of Delaware athletic letterwinners graduate with a degree. LOCATION Our location in Newark, Delaware, provides a comfortable small town college atmosphere. Newark, with a population of approximately 30,000, is midway between New York City and Washington, DC, and in close proximity to both Philadelphia and Baltimore. You can enjoy the educational and recreational advantages of these major metropolitan areas, as well as the white sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast or the ski resorts of the Poconos. The campus is only minutes from Interstate 95 in one of the most heavily populated corridors in the country, and the University is an active participant in a state that is one of the nation's top corporate centers. Our students and graduates are exposed to many research and internship opportunities just minutes from campus at major corporations such as the Bank of America, DuPont Co., Hercules, ICI Americas Inc., Morgan Bank, Chase Manhattan, and a host of others. In addition, more than 700 companies regularly recruit employees from the University's graduating senior class, putting the University of Delaware among the top schools in the Mid-Atlantic area for career placement.

Sixteen University buildings are listed on the National Register of Historical Places. UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE MEASURES OF SUCCESS • Best buy and more –The Princeton Review’s 2005 annual college guide, The Best 357 Colleges, gave UD four-star rankings for campus life and selectivity. Only about 15 percent of American undergraduate institutions are included in the guide. • The University of Delaware is the 11th best value in the country for out of state students at public colleges, and 13th best for in-state students, according to a listing of the top 100 schools in the January 2006 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. According to the magazine’s article on best values in public colleges, “Our exclusive survey of U.S. public college and universities shines a spotlight on schools that combine great academics with reasonable costs.” For its rankings, Kiplinger’s looked at several measures of academic quality, including admission rates, student-faculty ratios, percentage of faculty with the highest degrees in their field, amount spent on instruction for each student, amount spent on library facilities and four- and sixyear graduation rates. • UD was rated a “best value” in the 2003 edition of Kaplan’s The Unofficial, Unbiased Insider’s Guide to the 320 Most Interesting Colleges. • The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) gave UD’s professional education programs an outstanding evaluation after visiting the campus in the fall of 2003. The team studied the overall organization of professional education and reviewed all UD’s programs that educate prospective teachers, administrators and school psychologists. Only about a third of the institutions offering professional education programs in the nation are NCATE accredited, and only about 20 NCATE-approved institutions have achieved an assessment as strong as the University of Delaware's. In addition, UD’s secondary social studies program in teacher education earned high praise from the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS). Reviewers there were so impressed with the program that they asked permission to share the report on it with other universities as a model.

• UD’s Elementary Teacher Education Program received top ratings from the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), the specialty organization of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, the only accrediting organization approved by the U.S. Department of Education.

Stony Brook • UD’s Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management was ranked seventh among the top 25 hospitality programs in the country, tying with one of the oldest such programs in the nation and placing ahead of many well-known programs. The survey, published in 2002 in the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Education, gave UD high marks for its faculty, curriculum and students. Vita Nova, the restaurant in the Trabant University Center run by HRIM students, won the honor for best lunch buffet in Delaware Today’s 2004 Best of Delaware competition. One of the most popular restaurants in Newark, Vita Nova is consistently booked well in advance. • In the 2005 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” three UD graduate programs were ranked among the top 10 in the nation: physical therapy, fourth; and urban affairs and chemical engineering, both ranked ninth. In the 2006 edition, chemical engineering held on to its ninth place ranking, the College of Engineering was ranked 42nd and the School of Education was ranked 39th.

• Careers and Colleges Magazine selected UD as one of its “Cool Schools,” calling it “academically rigorous” and one of the “underrated gems” among American colleges and universities. • Alumni and friends value UD–UD’s first major capital campaign, the Campaign for Delaware, which began in 1998 as a five-year, $225 million fund-raising effort, far surpassed its original goal and generated more than $431 million. Since its inception, the Campaign has targeted key areas for funding: academic support through undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, discovery-based learning initiatives, improved library facilities, faculty support through endowed chairs and named professorships, facilities, equipment and unrestricted general support. The Campaign for Delaware has been successful in all these aspects and has, for example, made it possible to increase the number of endowed faculty positions from fewer than 10 to 106. University investments are now in excess of $1 billion, as recognized in a 2006 report of the National Association of College and University Business Officers. • Recognition by our peers–Some of the most influential groups in higher education today have great things to say about UD: • “Better than any University we are familiar with, Delaware has a clear sense of what it wants to be, namely, a University that offers a high quality undergraduate education with targeted areas of excellence in graduate education and research…. Today, the University is seen as a national model for the integration of information technology in every aspect of University life: teaching and learning, research and service, academic support and campus administration….” The evaluation team wrote that “these substantial achievements could not have happened without extraordinary leadership from the senior administration.” —Middle States Commission on Higher Education, April 2001 • “For several years now, both the members of the Boyer Commission and Reinvention Center constituents have been impressed and even inspired by the examples set by the University of Delaware in the reform and enrichment of undergraduate education. [UD’s Undergraduate Research Program is] one of the best in the country.” —Wendy Katkin, director of The Reinvention Center–The State University of New York at

• Beautiful and well-maintained campus–UD was singled out by The Chronicle of Higher Education as an institution dedicated to maintaining and preserving its campus, in contrast to the national problem of deteriorating facilities for higher education. Descriptions of UD in college guides invariably mention the beauty of the campus: The Princeton Review said that “the majority of UD students are pleased with the quality of life on campus and rave about ‘absolutely the most gorgeous campus anywhere.’” The Fiske Guide to Colleges wrote that UD has “all that the traditional college portrait entails: solid academics, rowdy athletic traditions, Northeastern beauty and all. Delaware’s spacious 1,000-acre campus is an attractive mix of Colonial and modern geometric buildings.” • Undergraduate research at UD is a national model–At any given time, at least 600-700 undergraduates are actively involved in research on the UD campus. Two-thirds of the faculty—and 90 percent of the engineering and science faculty—regularly work with undergraduates in research. Each year, about 300 undergraduate researchers present papers and posters at UD's Undergraduate Research Symposium, and undergraduates are routinely included as authors or co-authors with their faculty mentor on about 50-60 professional publications and presentations each year. Several students have gone on to receive national recognition for their work. • UD students are responsible computer users–UD is a leader in instilling in students the importance of responsible computing behavior. Before students can open an e-mail account on the campus, they must pass an online test that outlines the rights and responsibilities of computer use. UD offers a special educational campaign, called “The Code of the Web,” to raise awareness about responsible computing use issues such as bandwidth abuse and copyright infringement. The humor-based campaign features UD’s award-winning mascot YoUDee as an old-time Western sheriff using catch phrases from the era to make serious points, and it has received a positive response from students and faculty alike. The campaign has been promoted widely on shuttle buses, T-shirts, posters and coffee mugs, as well as in commercials that run during previews in the campus movie theatre and between technology assistance videos played on the campus cable television network. In August 2003, The Chronicle of Higher Education wrote about the campaign. In May 2005, UD was host to James Spertus, vice president of the Motion Picture Association of America and director of its U.S. anti-piracy efforts, and Richard L. Taylor, MPAA senior vice president of external affairs and education, who spoke openly with students about the problems associated with the piracy of entertainment products on college campuses. • Leading by example–The EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR) features the University of Delaware in a 2004 case study about campuses that are highly regarded for their ability to align Information Technologies efforts and investments with institutional goals and priorities. • Responsible behavior –The University of Delaware’s aggressive campaign to fight binge drinking has won it national attention. Since the beginning of the campaign, surveys on high-risk drinking conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health show significant declines in destructive behaviors by UD students. Data indicate that students are drinking alcohol more moderately, drinking alcohol with the express purpose of getting drunk has decreased, fewer students report having hangovers, missing classes and doing something they later regret and there has been a decrease in incidents in which students were insulted by others, became involved in serious arguments or quarrels, were hit or assaulted, had personal property damaged, had their sleep or study interrupted, were expected to “baby-sit” a drunken friend or experienced an unwanted sexual advance. • In 2004, the Education Development Center’s Center for College Health and Safety presented its Presidents Leadership Group Award to UD President David P. Roselle in recognition of the fact that UD was the first in the country to adopt a policy of parental notification when students break campus rules, particularly if they involve potentially dangerous activities. • Supportive parents –Parents of UD students put their money where their pride is! The Council in Aid of Education recently released a report that ranks the University of Delaware number one nationally in giving by parents of students and alumni to a public university. • Marine excellence–UD’s College of Marine and Earth Studies earned high honors from a national Sea Grant college review team that, after a campus visit, said the UD program is “in all respects considered excellent.” UD’s program is “unique and one of a kind in terms of its administrative structure within the University, its management, its high level of research, its outreach and its translation of science to its con-

stituents,” the team wrote. • When the Founding Fathers were young–The University of Delaware traces its origins to a small private academy founded by the Rev. Francis Alison in 1743. The Rev. Alison’s first class was a remarkable one, possibly the most distinguished of any other class in any school in America. The class of 10 went on to become statesmen, merchants and scholars of reputation. Three of them--George Read, Thomas McKean and James Smith—signed the Declaration of Independence, and Mr. Read also signed the Constitution. Those three names are being memorialized on three new residence halls on the Laird Campus, one of which, George Read Hall, opened for the 2005-06 academic year. • Genius Award-winners–Two UD alumni have won the prestigious MacArthur Fellowships—the so-called “genius award.” Jacqueline Jones, a 1970 graduate who is now Truman Professor of American Civilization and chair of the Department of History at Brandeis University, won the award in 1999, and Charles Lewis, a 1975 graduate and founder and executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Public Integrity, received the honor in 1998. Peter Jeffery, an assistant professor of music at UD from 1984-87, received a MacArthur Fellowship in 1987. The Student Services for Athletes Program is committed to having Blue Hen athletes become champions • Accreditation–The Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics is one of only 400 institutions throughin the classroom as well as on the field. out the world accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency for bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting programs. Other agencies that accredit UD programs include the THE WRITING CENTER Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology Inc.; the American Dietetic Association, Commission on The Writing Center provides a place for students to seek help regarding any paper, thesis or writing projAccreditation/Approval for Dietetics Education; the American Physical Therapy Association, Commission on ect.
