Letter from the Chancellor

It is my honor to welcome you to Johnson & Wales University’s Providence Campus, the oldest and largest of our four campuses.

Lately, just about every college is talking about experiential education. And that’s because it works. At Johnson & Wales we’ve been perfecting this approach for more than 100 years. It’s why we’re world renowned for providing students with the optimal blend of intellectual development, industry-focused education, résumé-building work experiences, leadership opportunities and an uncommon depth of career services.

It’s also why U.S. News & World Report ranks JWU among the best colleges and universities in the United States for 2019.*

In addition, our student services and activities, campus facilities and dedication to the community make the Providence Campus comfortable for all types of students from various backgrounds. In fact, with six colleges and universities within the city and five more throughout Rhode Island, Providence has the highest per-capita concentration of college students in the United States.

Providence is a truly vibrant and cultural city with a small-town feel and all the charms of New England. These elements make for an attractive place to live, work and visit. With its plethora of renowned restaurants and close proximity to Rhode Island’s famous beaches, Providence has been listed for five consecutive years by Travel + Leisure magazine among America’s favorite cities (and was the top pick for 2014).

I’ve been a part of the JWU community since 1988, and 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.

Mim L. Runey, LP.D.
