The State of Delaware and the University of Delaware have rich traditions connected to land and sea environments. Situated at the heart of the Mid-Atlantic seaboard, halfway between Washington, D.C., and New York City, we are a state with 381 miles of tidal shoreline; 76,000 acres of tidal wetlands; one of the largest estuaries on the East Coast; inland bays; one of the busiest canals in the United States; and beaches, tourism, industry, and infrastructure associated with the ocean. This is also a state rich in farmland and bustling city life as well as home to two national wildlife refuges and 14 state parks.
The College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment has facilities on UD's main campus in Newark and on the 132-acre Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes. Located 90 miles apart, the campuses are linked by two-way interactive television, allowing faculty and students to participate in classes from either location.
