Build the Pride: Experiential Learning

Our Experiential Learning Priorities

Best-in-Region Co-op Program

Serving business, engineering, and computer science majors, our co-op program is the finest in the greater Philadelphia region:

  1. 100% of students who complete our 12-month co-op program graduate in 4 years, not the typical 5. 
  2. Through mentoring from faculty, coaching from a co-op advisor, and connections with alumni, Widener students are able to secure a meaningful co-op in their field of professional interest. The co-op program at other universities rarely rivals this level of personal support.

These distinctions allow us to attract and retain the brightest, most promising students. But keeping these promises requires substantial resources.

SURCA Symposium

The more opportunities we can give students to pursue research and share their findings, the better prepared they will be to thrive and distinguish themselves in their lives and careers.

Our annual Summer Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (SURCA) Symposium brings together students and faculty to share discovery, celebrate inquiry, and build connections that lead to further opportunity.
