Today we asked why Sgt. Thomas was wearing purple under her uniform: “I’m wearing purple to honor my grandfather James, who passed away before I was born, and grandparents Dominic and Josephine, who passed away while I was a teenager. They all passed from cancer when they still had a lot of life left to live. I want to raise money for cancer research so that less children have to grow up without their grandparents.” 💜 Https://

Always remember to lock your doors to protect your belongings!

The University of Delaware kNOw MORE campaign is a reflection of the efforts by UD faculty, staff, and students to stand up, participate, and help to raise awareness about sexual misconduct and gender-based violence. Our goal is to create and foster an environment where sexual misconduct in any form is unacceptable and survivors are supported. As a movement, the kNOw MORE campaign aims to: *Encourage students to take matters of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, seriously and become informed about what assault and harassment looks like; *Encourage reporting of sexual misconduct/raise awareness on how to report; *Raise awareness about the importance of consent in all sexual relationships; *Encourage students to be active bystanders and to watch out for the safety of their peers; *Foster a campus climate that is supportive of victims and survivors of sexual assault and other related sexual misconduct; and *Promote awareness of healthy sexuality and the prevention of sexual misconduct. #KnowMoreUD #DatingViolenceAwarenessMonth
