Building Global Awareness
While at Widener, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to expand their worldviews and explore opportunities that push beyond the restraints of comfort zones.
More Ways We Promote DEIB & Global Awareness
Civic Engagement & Service Learning
At Widener, we see civic engagement not as a form of charity, but as a form of social justice. As we educate and empower our students, we are simultaneously building a collaborative campus and community partnerships that further the university’s civic mission.

Beideman Visiting Scholar Program
The Beideman Visiting Scholar program brings world-class speakers and scholars to the Widener campus on an annual basis to stimulate discussions on current and pertinent theories and practices related to leadership development and the effective exercise of leadership.
Study Abroad Experiences
Regardless of a student's major, our programs, either international or domestic, will offer students hands-on experiences. As students grow in their field, they will develop essential communication, language, critical thinking, and cultural competency skills. After studying abroad, students will feel more prepared as they enter their careers in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world.
