Cheyney Celebrated 184th Anniversary and Recognized Wistar With the Institutional Partnership Award

March 1, 2021

Cheyney University President Aaron Walton recognized Wistar during their Founder’s Day, presenting the Institute with the Institutional Partnership Award. In February, the Wistar-Cheyney University Collaboration kicked-off with the very first group of Cheyney students taking part in a hands-on biomedical research curriculum with their sights set on internship and career opportunities in the region’s burgeoning life science sector.

The Cheyney University Founder’s Day event honored distinguished alumni, students, and staff with musical performances and presentations from the University community as well as political, sporting and artistic luminaries. It celebrated the legacy of all the torchbearers and leaders who contributed to Cheyney’s success in the face of insurmountable odds.
