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.

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

I knew that coming to Widener would mean opportunities to meet speakers working in the industry. And, I know that when the time comes, I will be able to turn to them to help find a job.

When I’m in a patient’s room, assessing and giving medications, I hear my professors’ voices from lectures. They’ve made me the best nurse I could possibly be and continue to grow into.

Jeremiah's Story

You make time for the things you love. I love chemistry and learning. I love being a leader on campus and learning how to be a better person every day.

Having an MBA from Widener and being exposed to health care management will allow me to help even more patients than I would in an eight-hour, in-person shift.

What I’ve learned through the MEd program is the skills to succeed, whether it is organizational administration, coaching and developing leaders, or even the vernacular to know what is going on in the world of higher education.

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.
