Project WiCCED and DE EPSCoR sent a few representatives to the UD Day in DC which highlights the impact of federal funding and strong connections.

Amy Slocum, associate director of Delaware EPSCoR (Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) and assistant director of the Delaware Environmental Network (DENIN), said she is amazed at the growth she has seen in her 24 years at UD.

“There are so many different groups at the University now,” she said. “I can’t believe how much research has grown and diversified.”
