Widener University is a private, metropolitan university that connects curricula to social issues through civic engagement. Dynamic teaching, active scholarship, personal attention, and experiential learning are key components of the Widener experience. A comprehensive research university, Widener offers liberal arts and sciences and professional programs leading to associate's, baccalaureate, master's and doctoral degrees.
Widener University students use the Philadelphia metropolitan area as a learning laboratory. For example, communications students made a promotional video for the United Way of Southeastern Delaware County that is being shown on Chester Cable TV.
