Letter from the Dean

Your time at Johnson & Wales University is a partnership shared by all students, faculty and staff. Whether you are building your academic and professional skills or pursuing exciting work, leadership or recreational opportunities, take ownership of your success.

Your Student Handbook will help you along the way. It contains important information, including academic and university policies, for which you are responsible. In addition to its use as a policy reference, your Student Handbook can connect you with the resources you will need at JWU. You will find ways to enhance your academic foundation through a wide range of community and student-life opportunities offered in a richly diverse campus environment.

Finally, never hesitate to reach out to any JWU faculty or staff member. We care, and we want to ensure that you benefit from the competitive advantages that come with the JWU experience.


Ronald L. Martel, Ph.D.
Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students
