The Newark NAACP/UD Partnership
From Liza MacFadyen
The University of Delaware partners with various organizations in the Newark community, focusing on programs that enhance the long-term quality of life throughout Newark. CEI supports the UD-NAACP Partnership that focuses on improved collaborations in support of greater diversity and inclusion in the community and the University. A key function of the UD/NAACP partnership has been to preserve the heritage of Newark’s African American community, its landmarks, its history and its contributions. Included in this work is the preservation of the history of the School Hill community adjacent to the University of Delaware. CEI and the UD Library have worked with the NAACP and the Friends of School Hill to preserve the history of this community.
