News Transition to a Freestanding School

7/1/2020
Image Picker for Section 0

As of July 1, 2020, the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. School of Public Policy and Administration is a freestanding school at the University of Delaware, administratively separate from any college at UD. As the Biden School operates on an increasingly University-wide scale, this structure encourages the growth of cross-disciplinary, collaborative programs and enhances its unique role in fostering interdisciplinary partnerships. 

Designation as a freestanding school: 

  • aligns the Biden School with the structure of the nation’s leading public affairs programs;

  • affirms the Biden School’s distinctive interdisciplinary, professional and public service mission and orientation;

  • provides the independence needed for the Biden School to operate in a manner consistent with its mission and orientation;

  • establishes a level of institutional identity commensurate with its University-wide responsibilities; and

  • facilitates the Biden School’s collaboration with all University colleges and with diverse external partners, local to global.
