The Oskin Leadership Institute, which opened in 2011, has been made possible by a generous gift from David Oskin, the former chair of Widener's Board of Trustees, his wife JoEllen, and their late son, David.
The mission of the Oskin Leadership Institute is to perpetuate and strengthen the university's long and noble tradition of inspiring our students to be strategic leaders and responsible citizens who possess the character, courage, and competencies to affect positive change throughout the world.
The Institute's long-term vision is to drive Widener University's evolution into a world-class leadership degree producing institution recognized for its innovative leadership programs, especially opportunities for Widener students to lead outside their "comfort zones."
- The Oskin Leadership Institute will present the Widener Bugle to Ellen Kullman, CEO of Dupont, during the third annual Voices of Leadership Dinner.
