Our history as a former military college has given Widener a strong foundation, and has created a lasting set of values that are reflected in the university's mission statement today.
As a first-choice university, Widener is a dynamic, inclusive academic community, transforming students into scholars, leaders, and globally engaged citizens.
These values are a guiding force for the entire campus community and are infused into the curriculum through opportunities like life-changing study abroad experiences, hands-on internships or co-ops, and the development of strong leadership skills.
Here, you'll have direct access to emerging ideas, innovations, scholarship, and research that are shaping the fields you're preparing to enter. The result: an inside perspective on your future profession.
Our professors are respected leaders in their fields, sitting on industry boards, publishing research, and setting standards for professional practice. They are working on the leading edge of shifts and evolutions that will determine the future of your profession.
The Division of Student Affairs is dedicated to the holistic development of students at Widener University and works to inspire students to accomplish their educational goals and become responsible, productive and civically engaged citizens in a global community.
We integrate services and programs to promote student leadership, character development, and a sense of community that contributes to overall personal development.
In our residence halls and dining facilities, we seek to build fun, comfortable, and supportive environments to live, learn, and grow.
We know that the college experience is about more than just academic study and career preparation – though that's super important! College is also about being away from home and family (maybe for the first time), and forging new relationships – the kind that last a lifetime.
You will spend a lot of time in our residence halls and dining facilities with your second family of roommates, classmates, teammates, and friends. That's why it's our goal to make these places and spaces feel like your second home.
