Widener University’s President Harris Honored

January 20, 2011

Widener Magazine — which learned earlier this month that we won a Council for Advancement of Scholarship and Education District II award in the best article category — will be in very good company at the organization’s annual conference next month.

President James T. Harris III will receive the Chief Executive Leadership Award for CASE District II on Feb. 7 in Baltimore, Widener has announced.

“We have worked very hard at Widener for the past eight years to make the university one of the nation’s premiere civic engagement institutions,” Harris said. “It has truly been a university-wide effort involving administrators, faculty, alumni, donors and students. So, while my name may be on the award from CASE, this recognition is really about the work my colleagues, our community partners and I have done together to advance our mission.”
