Widener University invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean of the School of Engineering. The next Dean will have the opportunity to expand an already thriving School and sharpen its strategic focus by capitalizing on its current strengths and identifying new areas for growth and innovation.
Student success is at the heart of the School of Engineering – the faculty and staff at Widener are exceptionally and genuinely student centered. Leading a faculty that takes pride in their School’s intimate teaching and learning environment and are united in their focus on retaining and graduating undergraduate and graduate students across a diverse set of programs, the next Dean must be a strong advocate for a transformative student academic experience.
Faculty within the School of Engineering engage in state-of-the-art research, often with undergraduate and graduate students, in a variety of different areas, such as advanced manufacturing, tissue engineering, advanced control systems, nanoporous materials for energy/environmental issues, and smart monitoring of transportation infrastructure to name just a few. Faculty publish their work in highly regarded journals and successfully compete for funding from a variety of sources, including federal and state agencies, foundations, and corporate partners. The next Dean will have the opportunity to support the School’s exceptional students, faculty, and staff by providing personal leadership and attracting the resources necessary to continue and expand on the School’s mission.
