Welcome to Delaware Valley University
DelVal will transform your life!
As we celebrate the 120th anniversary of our founding in 1896, Josef Krauskopf's original vision of teaching "science with practice" is more important today than ever before.
At DelVal, we breathe life into this vision as our students work alongside passionate faculty and peers to use what they learn to address local and global challenges that matter to them. Students also gain valuable real-world training through our unique Experience360 Program. These opportunities lead to greater student success in the classroom and in the job market, as well as in life.
While we educate our students in critical disciplines such as agricultural, environmental, life, physical and social sciences, along with business and the humanities, to be truly impactful, DelVal promotes an environment that embraces a set of empowering core values. Students become a part of an inclusive learning community that pursues knowledge in a place that encourages respectful dialogue where all feel welcome and differences are valued. We know that diversity makes stronger and more effective teams.
DelVal is committed to having a more diverse student, staff and faculty. Moving forward, as the University's 13th president, I will be dedicated to creating an atmosphere that inspires people and fosters innovation, entrepreneurship, clear communication, responsible resource stewardship and strong partnerships.
Soon, DelVal will embark on a new strategic plan. As part of that process, I will conduct a "listening tour" to hear from members of our University family and our community partners. The "DelVal Plan" will guide our efforts to deliver the highest quality education that is relevant to today's learners transforming them into tomorrow's leaders.
