It is my honor to welcome you to Johnson & Wales University’s Providence Campus — the oldest and largest of our four campuses, with more than 10,000 students from all 50 states and over 70 countries.
For nearly a century, we’ve been transforming the dreams of career-minded students into reality.
By recruiting students who are best prepared for a JWU education, to providing them with a rounded, industry-focused faculty and curriculum, our strategic objectives embrace quality.
Through our academically rigorous, industry relevant and experientially-based programs, we’re developing tomorrow’s industry and civic leaders.
In addition, our academic programs, student services and activities, learning labs and campus facilities and dedication to the community make the Providence Campus comfortable for all types of students from various backgrounds.
Providence is a truly vibrant and cultural city with a small town feel and all the charms of New England. These elements make Providence an attractive place to live, work and visit.
With close proximity to Rhode Island’s famous beaches and larger world-class cities including New York and Boston, Providence is home to six colleges and universities, while the state of Rhode Island is home to five more.
I’ve been a part of the JWU community since 1988, and I am proud of our commitment to educational excellence that inspires professional success and lifelong personal and intellectual growth.
I invite you to visit and learn more about our dynamic campus and commitment to excellence.
Sincerely,Mim L. Runey, LPDProvidence Campus PresidentChief Operating Officer
