Community Community leadership is a foundational principle at JWU, and community involvement is encouraged at all levels — by students, faculty and administration.
Serious About ServiceOur students performed more than 160,000 hours of community service during the 2010-2011 academic year. This includes undergraduate and graduate community service-learning, community service work study and nonprofit internships, as well as reported volunteerism through dorms, clubs and on an individual basis. Feinstein Community Service Center The Feinstein Community Service Center seeks to build bridges between your academic knowledge and the skills you need to solve real-world problems. We integrate service-learning into curriculum. So our undergraduate and graduate students volunteer at about 60 local nonprofit organizations and schools each year as part of their degree program. Student Leaders in Community Engagement (SLICE)SLICE gives you the chance to build leadership and career skills through service at local nonprofit organizations. Community Service Awards Our campus made the national President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with distinction this year — and that’s just one of the many community service awards we’ve received. JWU is committed to collaborating with nonprofits in the local community, and expresses its support through in-kind and monetary contributions for local initiatives in neighboring communities.
