Two Centuries of Tradition, Success, and Belonging

As we celebrate the start of our third century, Widener remains a singular force—nimble and fearless, anticipating and addressing the world's emerging challenges. Energized by steady leadership and emboldened by a new strategic plan, we’ve launched a bold new approach called the The Inside Track—preparing students for distinction and success while shaping the professions they’ll go on to lead.  

Our continued rise depends on keeping this remarkable education within reach for students of every background while ensuring that our co-op program and research opportunities stand out in a brutally competitive marketplace. This is a moment of unprecedented possibility—for Widener and its students. There has rarely been a better or more exciting moment to connect with Widener. There has never been a more urgent need for your support. Please help us build the Pride.
