UDREAM Academic Coaching Program

Helping you make your academic dreams a reality!

The UDREAM Program is a comprehensive academic coaching and support program that is available for all students in the Lerner College of Business and Economics upon request. UDREAM will help yoU Develop Resources for Excellence in Academic Management.

Students meet with UDREAM advisors frequently throughout each semester to:

  • Set long-term and short-term goals
  • Manage time more efficiently
  • Develop organizational strategies
  • Enhance study skills
  • Check-in to monitor progress in individual classes
  • Receive referrals to connect with other university support services
  • Access free individual tutoring services (funded through the program if eligibility guidelines have been satisfied)

Under-represented students and students experiencing academic difficulty are especially encouraged to utilize this program to facilitate student success.  Under-represented students are assigned a UDREAM Advisor upon acceptance to the Lerner College and meet with a UDREAM Advisor during New Student Orientation.

The UDREAM program is staffed by:

Trish Moore

Cindy Walkusky

Carrie Baldwin

in the Lerner Undergraduate Advisement Office, 102 Purnell Hall.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
