With the federal income tax deadline of April 18 rapidly approaching, the University of Delaware reminds the entire University community to be alert for attempts to steal personal information or commit tax fraud. In fact, this week, the IRS issued a warning about an identity theft scheme that has already affected residents of Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. According to an April 6 IRS press release, “the scam uses phishing email that cites tax fraud and tries to trick victims into verifying 'the last four digits of their Social Security number' by clicking on a link provided."

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.
