We know that character, courage, and competency are the marks of a true leader.
We’re proud to have an executive team and board members that exemplify those qualities.
Living the Mission
From the Board of Trustees to the university's support staff, Widener is dedicated to the mission and vision of the university. It's this sense of shared purpose that has established Widener as a benchmark institution in university governance and leadership. The Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges recognized Widener in the book Leading Change: How Boards and Presidents Build Exceptional Academic Institutions.
Planning for Success
Thanks to a comprehensive, inclusive planning process, Widener has a strategic plan outlining its goals through 2021, the university's bicentennial. And we have a game plan for making those goals a reality. In fact, with our updated state-of-the-art facilities in our engineering building, which includes Widener's Observatory; Founders Hall, which houses our School of Nursing; Freedom Hall, home to the communication studies and computer science programs; and the Oskin Leadership Institute, we are well on our way to becoming a leading metropolitan university.
