  DSU Awarded For Accommodating Employee Guard/Reservists


The Delaware Division of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) has recognized Delaware State University for its accommodations of deployed DSU employees who are National Guard and National Army/Air Force Reserve members.
 
Richard Ruben, the Delaware ESGR employer outreach representative, recently presented DSU with the ESGR Above and Beyond Award, in recognition of the University’s track record for working with its employees who serves in the National Guard and National Army/Air Force Reserves.
 
Mr. Ruben presented the award to Dr. Alton Thompson, DSU provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, and Dr. Bradley Skelcher, associate provost, who both accepted the award on behalf of the University.
 
“This is in recognition of how DSU accommodates its employees who are in the Guard and Reserves when they have to deployed and spend time away from their jobs,” Mr. Ruben said. “They are able to serve their country while DSU ensures that their employment is secured.”
