Faith in the Classroom

The light of the Catholic faith illuminates every aspect of life at UD.

Independent thinking

Dr. Perez BernardoStudents laughingly describe our professors as sometimes playing “devil’s advocate” in the classroom, acknowledging that it spurs them to see and understand different points of view.
