Description & History

The Office of Civic Engagement aims to foster our next generation of personally and socially responsible leaders.

The Presidential Services Corps/Bonner Leader program and the AmeriCorps program are two of the office’s signature opportunities to educate, empower, and equip civically engaged leaders.

It also sponsors the five-day Project Lead pre-orientation program as well as one-time service initiatives, such as the Freshmen Day of Service, MLK Day of Service, Make a Difference Day, and monthly service events in Chester.

The office also promotes and supports many other service and leadership development opportunities to the Widener community and continually builds collaborative campus and community partnerships to further the university’s civic mission.
