      We All Make Widener a World-Class Institution

      President Julie E. Wollman

      Widener University President Julie E. Wollman

      Happy New Year!

      It is a pleasure to welcome everyone back for the spring semester after a break that I hope allowed you time for reflection and renewal.

      You are returning to a university that has been named one of the Philadelphia area's top 10 schools by the Wall Street Journal. We all know Widener is a vibrant place of opportunity, but it is gratifying to see a news organization of this caliber publicly place us in such high regard. I find it particularly rewarding when I consider there are more than 100 colleges and universities who also call the Philadelphia area home.

      This ranking belongs to all of us, because, together, we make Widener stand above the many others in this crowded field.

      It belongs to our diverse body of engaged students, who are dedicated to developing leadership skills, growing academically through hands-on learning and strengthening communities as civically engaged professionals.

      It belongs to our faculty, dedicated to developing thoughtful, strong, committed citizens who take courage, ethics and integrity with them when they graduate.

      It belongs to our administrators and staff, devoted to advancing these principles and creating a meaningful and transformative experience for our students.

      And, it belongs to our alumni, whose successes are the foundation for what we do and the proof of how well we do it!

      There's never been a better time to be at Widener. We are a world-class institution.

      With pride,
      Dr. Julie E. Wollman
