Commencement Awards

Commencement is a celebration of accomplishments of our graduates. With so many talented graduates, we certainly have a lot to celebrate.

Ann Heller Maberry Award

The Ann Heller Maberry Award is conferred annually upon a senior woman distinguished by outstanding character, high academic achievement, proven responsibility, and service to the University.

Cardinal Spellman Award

The Cardinal Spellman Award is conferred annually upon a senior man or woman who has attained a G.P.A. of at least 3.5, aspires to graduate study in an academic or professional field, and exemplifies the ideals of the University.

Helen L. Corbitt Awards

The Helen L. Corbitt Awards recognize a senior woman and a senior man who, while at UD, produced an outstanding set of achievements that enriched the life of the University. A separate letter will be sent to all graduating seniors with G.P.A.’s of 3.40 or better, inviting them to apply. Faculty and staff should feel free, however, to encourage eligible students to apply.
