Alumni Book Club

The Alumni Book Club features novels recommended by UD’s faculty. Presented quarterly via Facebook Live, the hour-long discussion is hosted by the professor whose recommendation was selected. The professor shares his or her reflections on the book and responds to questions and comments submitted live from the participating alumni community.

Follow UD’s Alumni Facebook page for book club announcements and to view the live events. Watch previous recordings of the Alumni Book Club.


EnCore Lecture Series

EnCore is a traveling lecture series, conducted by UD faculty in conjunction with the Alumni Relations Office. The lectures are offered to alumni in various cities across the U.S. and reframe topics from the Core curriculum in fresh perspectives. Each lecture is recorded and shared on Soundcloud



Subscribe to UD’s Soundcloud channel to hear influential alumni, faculty and staff engage in thought-provoking dialogue. We host three distinct podcasts: Living UD, Good News and Think UD.

Living UD introduces alumni who share their UD stories and the ways they bring the mission of UD into the world — whether at home or in the workplace.

Originally produced by the Guadalupe Radio Network, Good News is a series hosted by UD’s provost, J.J. Sanford, Ph.D. Dr. Sanford and his special guests give consideration to a range of fascinating topics.
