Vision & History

New Vision for Widener

Focus on Transformative Learning

President Julie E. Wollman shares her vision for Widener University, which includes cultivating a curriculum that is focused on solving the world's most vexing problems as well as training students to become global leaders.

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.
