Build the Pride: Experiential Learning
Our Experiential Learning Prioirities
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:
- 100% of students who complete our 12-month co-op program graduate in 4 years, not the typical 5.
- Widener students are guaranteed co-ops in their field of professional focus. Other universities can’t make this guarantee.
These distinctions allow us to attract and retain the brightest, most promising students. But keeping these promises requires substantial resources.

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.

Other Opportunities to Make an Impact
When you host a co-op or internship, you're preparing students to make immediate, meaningful contributions to their field by building their confidence and technical skills.
WidenerCONNECT is our social and professional networking platform that connects our vast network of alumni and students.
When our students graduate, they don’t just start their careers; they continue the work they’ve been doing all along. Find out more about how we can help you recruit the talent you need and deserve.

Each year, Widener marketing students participate in collegiate sales challenges where they network with alumni and employers, and often secure job offers.
