Athletics

We know that for many families, sports and athletics are what bring them together. That’s why we’re proud that JWU’s Charlotte Campus is home to 12 DIII varsity teams.

JWU has excellent facilities for a school its size. Combine that with the opportunity to play in big games and national championships, and the stage is set for a really attractive product for potential recruits.

That standard of excellence also extends to our student-athletes. In 2021-22, JWU Charlotte had 27 USCAA All-Academic honorees and 16 USCAA All-Americans across all varsity sports. In addition, Charlotte Athletics was also honored with National Coach of the Year, National Player of the Year, and National Student-Athlete of the Year in women’s basketball.

Our mantra is ‘excellence at every level.’ We believe in the total development of all of our student-athletes — athletically, academically, personally. ATHLETIC DIRECTOR TRUDI LACEY
