INSTITUTES, CENTERS AND CORE FACILITIES
Research Institutes and Centers
Thriving research centers and institutes at the University of Delaware, reflect the diversity and rigor of UD’s research interests and activity and our commitment to improving the quality of life in Delaware and beyond. Our academic landscape is shaped by these partnerships and play a strategic role in bringing together scholars and scientists at UD.
ABOVE: The Patrick T. Harker Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (Harker Lab) is a hub of teaching and research on campus. The 194,000-square-foot facility brings together students and faculty from various disciplines to teach, learn and conduct research in a collaborative environment.

To an extent matched by few peer institutions, the University of Delaware fulfills the Kellogg Commission’s model of an “engaged university” — an institution that makes a comprehensive and sustained contribution to the improvement of the communities it serves. UD’s research centers increasingly are becoming important state, national, and international assets.
Our faculty attract significant research sponsorship for projects and programs of student and public benefit, including support for federally funded national centers of excellence.
