Letter from the President

Your experience at Johnson & Wales University is important to our faculty, staff and administration. Consider your time at JWU 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, we are here to help you.

You are encouraged to take ownership of your success through your academic college, JWU's many complimentary services, and all aspects of student life. Your Student Handbook will help you along the way. It contains important information, including academic and university policies, for which you are responsible. We ask you, our students, to familiarize yourself with its contents and refer to it often.

In addition to its use as a policy reference, your Student Handbook can connect you to the resources you will need at JWU. You will find ways to enhance your academic foundation including critical leadership and communications skills through a wide range of student-life opportunities offered in a welcoming JWU campus environment.

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

Larry A. Rice, Ed.D., '90
President, North Miami Campus
