Faculty Mentorship

At the heart of the Widener experience are the talented and caring professors who make their students' education and personal well-being their first priority.

Pride Perspectives

Guidance and connections from mentors help place our students on the inside track to personal and professional success.

At Widener I’ve been getting ready for my career by doing it, in the lab and at my internship. When I graduate, I won’t just be starting my career. I’ll be continuing the work that I’ve been doing all along.

DeShawn's Story

Classes are small. So you can actually have that deep conversation with professors. It turns into an almost individual class and becomes better in the learning process.

More Than Just Professors

The women and men of the Widener faculty bring a whole new meaning to the phrase "Above and Beyond."

Close and Personal

At its best, learning is a two-way exchange, an ongoing conversation. Our professors provide constant, continual feedback that helps you improve your writing, thinking, research, and clinical skills. They teach and then they mentor. This investment takes considerable time and energy. Our professors think it's worth it.

Career Building

Deeply Connected

Our size is just right for developing relationships. Big enough to find mentors who share your interests and understand your goals. Small enough for you to find your way into a professor's lab for research collaboration. Relationships matter moving forward. Your Widener professors will be resources for life.

They link you with relevant internships, co-ops, and research opportunities. They put you in touch with Widener alumni in your field, people who are able (and eager) to help you get started.
