Widener University is a nationally-recognized, private university where academics, leadership and service matter.
Founded in 1821, Widener is among the nation’s top universities for civic engagement.
We offer liberal arts and sciences and professional programs leading to associate’s, baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees.
We’ve got a long history of turning out leaders, and we’ve got a formula that works. At Widener, we believe that academic excellence, career preparation, and civic engagement lead to success.
Our close-knit community includes top-notch teachers, nationally renowned researchers, and students from 22 states and 26 countries who are passionate about learning, leadership, and making a difference.
When they’re not engaged in experiential learning assignments, our students and faculty members lend a hand through community service projects in our hometown of Chester and in communities around the world.
In addition, with Philadelphia only 20 minutes away, we’ve got a living laboratory where students earn practical experience through internships and co-op opportunities.
Our beautiful 110-acre main campus in Chester is a great place to live, study, and have fun, and we’ve got satellite campuses in Exton and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and in Wilmington, Delaware, too.
