In January 2013, University Communications will launch the new “DU Hub”, replacing the existing DU Daily news blog for students, the eNews blog for employees, and the Press Room for news media. This new “all-in-one” communications tool will:
- Provide greater access for all audiences to all DU news items
- Improve overall functionality for users
- Create centralized access point for all DU communication tools, including print publications, social media, videos and more
Keep your eyes peeled in DU Daily (soon to be the DU Hub) for more information, and look for a new, enhanced newsletter for students, staff, faculty and beyond in 2013!
The University is interested in student feedback on how you purchase your books. Do you use MBS Direct? Do you buy in the store? Or do you find them online somewhere?
MBS Direct has launched a survey and would like your feedback – it literally takes 2 minutes to complete.

The troop acknowledged the care package and were extremely appreciative.
Students now have the opportunity to use their DU credits toward a Bachelor of Social Work from Kuyper College in Grand Rapids — earning two bachelor degrees at the same time! Starting Winter 2013, DU and Kuyper College will offer a program leading to a degree in Social Work using DU credits.
When you earn 64 credits toward a Bachelor of Applied Science at Davenport, you can then transfer credits to Kuyper’s Bachelor of Science Social Work program.
Complete 63 additional credits at Kuyper, and you will earn both degrees.
Employment of social workers is expected to grow by 25 percent from 2012 to 2020 and employment of child, family and school-focused social workers is expected to grow by 20 percent.

The Kalamazoo Campus has had a great Fall semester with many community service projects. These are a few of the best:
- Raised over $650 for Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids with our Go Bald for Cancer fundraiser.
- Collected almost 200 cans of food for the Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes, over 150 pieces of clothing for Eleanor’s House of Kalamazoo, and delivered 50 tags with toys and clothing for the Salvation Army Angel Tree.
- Students, faculty and staff created 52 holiday cards for the residents of the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.
Kalamazoo has many community service projects planned for the 2013 Winter semester! Students can check the “Things to do” section of the Student Life bulletin board in the Student Lounge for ideas of community service projects. And of course the many thank you letters and cards we receive are posted on the ”Thank you’s” section of the bulletin board.
The Kalamazoo Campus wants to thank all the students, faculty, and staff for their generous support of all the projects we had this semester.
