可持续发展的未来

A message from Chancellor Mim L. Runey, LP.D.: Johnson & Wales University’s new strategic direction for a sustainable future.

Throughout our 106-year history, Johnson & Wales University has been transformed by our university leadership who responded to the changing times with the vision to see where we needed to go and how to get there. Once again, we are going through a remarkable change in higher education. Once again, it is time for us to respond with a new vision for Johnson & Wales’ future.

This week, the JWU Board of Trustees determined that the time has come to consolidate the university’s physical footprint as we strategically move to become a more comprehensive university focused on a broader array of academic offerings. As we position the university for the future, JWU’s unique status as one university, with four geographically diverse on-the-ground campuses must now become part of our past. At our flagship campus in 普罗维登斯, we will continue focusing our efforts to create a thriving six-college model, complemented by our robust College of 线上 Education, as we add new programs in engineering, design, and health and wellness; expand offerings in the arts and sciences; and, promote our new College of Food Innovation & Technology. Together, with new presidential leadership, a growing portfolio of academic programs and continued strong support from the 夏洛特 community, Johnson & Wales University will be well positioned to thrive in the years ahead.

随着我们成为一个更加综合性大学,在普罗维登斯和夏洛特校区,已决定在北迈阿密和优德平台在2021年夏天的这个决定不是轻易做出正式停止运营,并且我们知道它会影响我们的社区成员。而北迈阿密和优德平台将打开这个九月谁已经开始学业的学生,​​新生将不会被允许在JWU的北迈阿密或优德平台就读。该大学将与工作每一个学生的影响来制定一项计划,允许他们毕业的时间,无论是在另一个JWU校园,网上或其他机构。了解更多信息并更好地理解许多因素导致了这个决定,我们将支持我们在佛罗里达州和科罗拉多州的社区成员的措施, 阅读完整的讯息 从受托人主席吉姆·汉斯和我的JWU板。

通过JWU的每次变换,我们变得更强了,因为我们有足够的勇气来做出正确的决策,以确保大学将继续履行其使命,提供一个特殊的教育。

所以一直以来,始终将是:永远JWU。
