About

History

Johnson & Wales University (JWU) was founded as a business school in 1914 in Providence, Rhode Island, by Gertrude I. Johnson and Mary T. Wales. From its origins as a school devoted to business education, JWU has grown to a junior college, senior college, and ultimately university status.

Education

An innovative educational leader, the university offers degree programs in arts and sciences, business, culinary arts, design and engineering, education, health and wellness, hospitality, nutrition and physician assistant studies. Its unique model integrates arts and sciences and industry-focused education with work experience and leadership opportunities, inspiring students to achieve professional success and lifelong personal and intellectual growth.

Research

Institutional Research engages university stakeholders with quality and timely information, analysis, and education relative to institutional data for the purpose of advancing a culture of inquiry and continuous improvement.

As advocates for a collaborative and reflective process of organizational learning, Institutional Research actively supports universitywide planning, decision-making, accreditation, and assessment activities, while also coordinating submission of required reports to external agencies and organizations concerning students and employees.

Career

At JWU, we’re dedicated to building careers. Our approach is designed to help you identify a field of interest and acquire the knowledge, hands-on experience, internships and network to excel in that field. Take advantage of our career education, both inside and outside the classroom, and develop the skills to compete in the global economy.

Services

Student services

Student Services at JWU provides personal and professional development support for students across various aspects of campus life, from academic support to meals and housing, health services, and involvement in campus programs and student organizations.

Housing services

JWU offers a variety of living options, including halls with private or common bathrooms, suites and apartment-style units. Depending on the hall, occupancy in each suite or apartment-style unit ranges from one to six residents. Each building offers something uniquely different to meet the needs of every resident.

Occupancy options vary by hall, with choices ranging from one to six residents.

All residence halls are smoke free.

The Downcity Campus, located in the heart of Providence, houses students enrolled in the Arts & Sciences, Business, Hospitality, and Technology programs.

The Harborside Campus primarily houses students enrolled in the College of Culinary Arts.

Library services

The JWU Providence Library gives students the space and tools they need to navigate and synthesize today's complex world of information, providing access to a wide range of scholarly, literary and trade publications, including books, eBooks, articles, images, videos, and websites plus the support of librarians and information specialists on campus or online.

Medical services

We emphasize prevention of health problems and offer direct health services on campus, combined with referrals to hospitals and specialists when needed.  

All student (resident and commuters) regardless of insurance carrier may utilize our health service clinics at no cost. 

Student Life

In Denver the campus focal point, historic Treat Hall, is being fully renovated into a multi-use student services building to be called Centennial Hall.
