Letter from the North Miami Campus President
Located between the fast-paced cities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and bordered by the beaches of Biscayne Bay, North Miami is a thriving international business and travel destination. The area is a dynamic hub of sports, events, shopping, culture and restaurants that draws an energetic influx of world travelers, celebrities and outdoor enthusiasts.
Appropriately referred to as the “Gateway to the Americas,” South Florida’s mix of cultures, international influences and urban setting makes the North Miami Campus an ideal place to prepare for your career. In fact, The Wall Street Journal recently named JWU's North Miami Campus as the #1 college for diversity in the south, and tied for #3 in the nation.
At Johnson & Wales University, your career preparation begins from the moment you step foot on campus. Whether you choose to pursue a degree through our John Hazen White College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business, College of Hospitality Management, College of Engineering & Design or College of Culinary Arts, you’ll benefit from the depth of knowledge of our faculty members and the industry experience you’ll gain, combined with coursework designed to prepare you to begin your career.
Our emphasis on developing future leaders extends beyond the classroom. Our students are encouraged to gain a broader understanding of the civic and business needs facing the community through volunteer service projects like Join! Work! Unite! and various events throughout the South Florida community. In fact, during the 2016–17 academic year, North Miami Campus students performed 29,148 hours of community service.
As a JWU graduate, I know firsthand how JWU's focus on experiential education and professional preparation benefits students. I am proud to serve as the president of the North Miami Campus and look forward to welcoming you.
Larry A. Rice, EdD, '90
President, North Miami Campus
