We've come a long way from our beginning in 1821 as a Quaker school for boys.
Since then, the institution now known as Widener University has been a prep school, a military academy, and a small college before transforming into the dynamic metropolitan university it is today. Yet throughout its history, Widener University has maintained its commitment to producing leaders in fields ranging from engineering and health care to business and education.
Each of our college and schools is a center of excellence and a leader in its own distinct way. Explore each school's diverse program offerings, distinctive attributes, recent news and rankings, and upcoming events.
