Award Winning Community Service

We’re making a difference now, and training you to make a difference in the future. Community leadership is a foundational principle at JWU, so you develop the skills and personal commitment to be strong, ethical leaders in your industry.

JWU's Greek Life students make a big impact through community service, especially with organizations like the Boys & Girls Club

Why do our ProvidenceNorth MiamiDenver or Charlotte campus community service programs win awards?

Because we combine service with academics, from service-learning courses to volunteer opportunities in your field.

Our students performed over 240,000 hours of community service last year, building essential leadership and career skills at schools and nonprofits in our campus communities.

President’s Community Service Honor Roll
JWU has made this select honor roll every year since it was founded in 2006 to salute colleges who stand out for their achievement in community service.

Princeton Review’s College with a Conscience
JWU was also one of The Princeton Review’s Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools with Outstanding Community Involvement.

Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
Our Providence Campus was recognized for its service work in Rhode Island. In 2008, JWU was one of just 118 higher education institutions nationwide — and the only one from Rhode Island — for Carnegie’s Community Engagement Classification for Curricular Engagement and Outreach & Partnerships.
