The Stand Down originally scheduled for Friday, 24 September 2020 is now rescheduled for Friday, 23 April 2021.

Sadly, the event is delayed due to the ongoing Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Your health and well-being remains our top concern, as always and we do not want to jeopardize you in any way. Safe distancing, masks and so many more guidelines established by our State Governor by direction of the CDC, to keep everyone safe still may have the potential for unhealthy risks even with our best efforts.

For Veterans, Family Members and Service Providers, we look forward to the twelfth annual Stand Down event and hope that moving from September to April will not cause too much delay in your services. If you are in need of any
type of service please do not wait until April. Our Committee Members are standing by to assist you at any time. Call the Veterans’ Awareness Center in Greenwood, Delaware at 302-349-4898.

Our Committee appreciates the organizations that have already registered, as Service Providers for the upcoming 2020 event and we will continue to hold a place for you for the 2021 event. You need not reapply. If you are unavailable to attend, please contact the Veterans Awareness Center at:
302-349-4898 or
We will ensure that any information that you would like to provide to attendees will be set in a special planned area.

We wish you all continued good health as the world navigates back to a safe and normal life. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we will see you in April!

At UD Professional and Continuing Studies, we understand the deep impact COVID-19 has created in our region, and we want to do our part to help Delaware and our surrounding region recover as soon as possible. As the region’s leader in workforce training and development, we feel the best way to contribute given the current situation is to leverage our training and development expertise. As a result, I am reaching out to share with you that UD PCS is sponsoring a series of free professional development webinars geared toward professionals who may need to re-enter the workforce post COVID-19. These webinars will be offered once a month, starting in May, and they will run through August.

We hope these webinars can provide a timely resource for many professionals in our region. I have attached a flyer detailing these webinars, and we are asking for your help in sharing this resource with your network.


If there is anything else UD PCS can do to help you and your organization during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I would be happy to discuss how we can assist you during this unprecedented time.
