3.1 Instructional Program Policies

Instruction is the most fundamental of the educational responsibilities of the University. The University's primary mission is to foster the acquisition of knowledge and skills in its students. Research is of value in its own right, but it also contributes to excellence in the learning of UD students. Moreover, service activities within the wider community also complement the learning of students and constitute essential parts of the University's academic program. It is the stated objective of the University to foster the total intellectual, cultural, and ethical development of its students as citizens, scholars, and professionals. Learning outside the classroom must be considered an integral part of the educational program of the University.
