  • Students Travel from Greece to Widener for Leadership Training

    Widener hosted a group of 13 high school students from the ACS Athens school in Greece over a week in June for an intensive residential leadership training program. The students stayed in Boettner Hall and studied leadership with Hal Shorey, director of Organizational Development Services and the PsyD/MBA dual degree program, during the day. They participated in evening leadership activities and spent a day touring Philadelphia. 

    The leadership course was custom designed for young leaders who will transform the world and the groups and people with whom they work. Students were able to learn about their own leadership styles and how to broaden and build their abilities using state-of-the-art tools and interactive exercises. Students engaged in a series of self-assessments with facilitated feedback of their transformational leadership, emotional intelligence and interpersonal and critical-thinking abilities.

    Widener formalized a partnership with ACS Athens in 2016 that provides educational opportunities for students who attend ACS Athens, including summer programs like this one. ACS Athens provides a rigorous high school program and is attended by Greek students, international students and students who are American citizens – including many who have spent their lives in Greece.

    A graduation and certificate ceremony was held Saturday, June 24 as the program concluded.
