Over five weeks, students from Widener’s three campuses took advantage of an opportunity made possible through Widener’s partnership with the August-Wilhelm Scheer Institute in Germany for the first-ever internationally held Innovation Sprint.
Widener and the Philadelphia Union hosted a series of area high school students for field trips to get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to work in sports and the academic paths to get them there.
Partnering with faculty advisors, more than 60 students participated in the annual Summer Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities (SURCA) program, applying what they’ve learned in the classroom to real-life, hands-on projects.
For more than 50 years, co-ops at Widener offer the unique experience for students to get hands-on, paid experience while still graduating on time.
Vincent Starkey, senior marketing major and ROTC Cadet, traded places with President Stacey Robertson in the annual President for a Day.
Two new grant opportunities demonstrate how Widener’s partnerships with high-profile Philadelphia-area employers benefit students in pursuit of their degrees.
