About Lerner College

Faculty Documents & Policies

The Lerner College promotion and tenure and workload policies, which are consistent with the Lerner College mission, are in place to manage and support faculty members over the progression of their careers, including teaching assignment and intellectual expectations, and the formal periodic review, promotion and reward processes. In addition, annual performance evaluation and planning processes, information on two- and four-year reviews and contract renewals and explanations of post tenure reviews may be found in the UD Faculty Handbook online at http://www.udel.edu/provost/fachb/. Department chairs are held accountable to follow the guidelines in the UD Faculty Handbook to ensure adequate student-faculty contact across learning experiences and set high expectations for instructional effectiveness. At the department level, criteria specific to the faculty appraisal process is outlined in department-specific promotion and tenure documents.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.
