Working on different projects at Widener taught me how to think on my feet. It taught me how to not leap before I think, but to leap while also thinking.

Every study abroad trip, every internship opportunity, every volunteer event, every class is contributing to me not only being a better person, but better in business. The world of business today requires us to be globally active.

Mamadou Keita is mentored by Professor Stephanie Schechner

I am very fortunate to have come to this country and received one of the best educations. My mindset now is ‘how can I give that type of opportunity to others back home in Guinea?’

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.

Guides to Your Future

Influential figures in their disciplines, our professors have a network of connections directly related to your future path. 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.
