MAKE MORE THAN A LIVING

BUILD LIFE There’s a reason people use the phrase “building a life.” Because like building anything, it’s a process. It takes hard work. But here’s the thing about hard work: anyone can do it. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or where you’ve been, if you are willing to put in the effort for what you want, there’s only one direction you’re going: forward. At Johnson & Wales University, we want you to imagine everything your future can be. And then we’ll help you work toward it—because when you work, so does your education. With campuses in Providence, North Miami, Denver, and Charlotte, each with distinct offerings, your options are as open as your potential. As one of the first colleges founded by two women, Gertrude I. Johnson and Mary T. Wales,

a progressive approach to learning is at our core. Since 1914, our goal has been for students to make the most of their time at college—to bring out their potential and turn it into a career. What began as a business school has since become known not only for culinary and hospitality expertise, but for cultivating a supportive environment where students and faculty work together to bring out the best in each other. We continue to evolve as we apply our passion and knowledge to everything we teach, from engineering to marketing. Through education that instills a love of learning to industry connections that put that love into practice, we work by your side to turn your passion into a life.

C R E AT E A L I F E YO U ’ L L LOV E Some students know what they want to study from day one. Some students know what they’re interested in, but don’t have an exact major pinned down. And some students have no idea what they want to study. Guess what? That’s ok. It doesn’t matter into which of these categories you fall, we’re going to work hard to make sure you’re on a path to an enriching career— even if that path isn’t a straight line. Unlike at most other colleges, we give you access to major-specific classes starting your first year. We want you to dive right into what you love—and spend all four

years pursuing experiences in your field to build your résumé. You’ll get to access state-of-the-art makerspaces, e-centers, laboratories, formal dining rooms, and advanced culinary stations. With four campuses worth of classes, collaborations, majors, and programs, you’re sure to f ind something that ignites your passion, and you might even have the opportunity to travel to another campus to enrich your studies.

PITCH PERFECT JWU has the most awarded collegiate advertising program in New England, having advanced to National Student Advertising Competition nationals six times in seven years. The American Advertising Federation’s NSAC is renowned among college advertising students. Most of them have probably even competed in it. But how many students can say they won it? In 2017, JWU’s 31-member team gained those bragging rights. The team developed a strategy and advertising campaign pitch for Tai Pei frozen food that impressed judges from across the country and actual Tai Pei executives. Not only did the team win the $3,500 grand prize, they gained the kind of experience that goes far with future employers.

GETTING AHEAD BEHIND THE SCENES JWU students plan fun events that build real, authentic connections with faculty members. Do you dream of being behind the scenes at major sports and entertainment events? How about running those events? For students in our Sports, Entertainment, and Event — Management program (SEEM), that dream becomes a reality as they work with faculty to plan and execute the SEEM Leadership Conference. As one of the many experiential-based learning opportunities available to students, the goal of the conference is to connect today’s industry leaders with the leaders of tomorrow. But there’s a bonus, too: the invaluable student experience gained by pulling off a memorable large-scale conference. 3

At JWU, we have some of the most passionate, dedicated leaders in academia, with years of professional experience to back up their lessons. They are committed to working with you one-on-one to help you develop your

skills, and use their experience not only to teach the way the industry actually works, but to develop innovative programs that directly reflect 21st-century needs.

F O O D - C O N S C I O U S C U LT U R E These days, sustainability has become a buzzword. But for chef instructors at the College of Culinary Arts, it’s baked into every aspect of how they teach food preparation, from growing to disposal. They’re not only training a generation of food-conscious professionals, they’re helping to solve global issues of hunger and reducing food waste. It begins well before the dish is prepared. Says Chef TJ Delle Donne ’04, ’07 M.A.T., C.E.C., assistant dean of culinary relations, “We teach students to think about what they’re doing, to be aware of their ingredient choices.” That means developing relationships with local growers, or even teaching students how to grow food themselves at the Edible Gardens in North Miami, the COOP in Charlotte, and DiPasquale Teaching Garden in Denver. “Chefs have the power to make the change,” says instructor Rollie Wesen. “At the end of the day, it’s important to be proud of what you’re serving—not only in taste but also in sustainability.”

MAKING A SCENE James Desmarais, associate professor in criminal justice, knows how to create a crime scene. In fact, he does it all the time for his criminalistics courses, exposing students to scenes that look like they were pulled from the first five minutes of a CSI episode. But for his students, CSI is more than a television show, it’s a calling, one they get to explore by working mock crime scenes and studying evidence in JWU’s state-of-the-art crime lab. A retired Providence police detective, Captain Desmarais advocated for this lab to give students the experience of investigating crime scenes. As a criminal justice major, you’ll not only examine these mock scenarios, but collect, identify, and process evidence. Meaning you’ll be prepared to hit the ground running—or perhaps analyzing—from day one.

RISING FOR JOSIE WOLFE ’18,

her lifelong passion for baking and pastry arts went beyond simply learning to bake— it was the ultimate combination of rightand left-brain skills. The craft of baking is methodical and scientific, but the flavors and plating are creative. When looking at colleges, Josie needed a place that brought more than just technical training to the table, but an immersive experience weaving together all aspects of the culinary industry. JWU was the only school that checked every box. “I knew I needed the job-specific technical skills: the scaling, the mixing, the decorating. Johnson & Wales also offered a way to develop the industry connections I needed with the experienced faculty and the internship opportunities, and the ability to learn the business aspect of the food service industry,” Josie says.

advantage of experiential opportunities like SkillsUSA, a career and technical student organization. And her internship at Walt Disney World offered valuable culinary experience. Josie wants to take everything she’s learned and someday become a baking and pastry instructor, but for now she has several jobs waiting for her thanks to the connections and skills developed at JWU. As one of the 2018 commencement speakers, Josie equated JWU with a strong work ethic, no matter what you study: “I am proud to stand with you as a Wildcat because I know we are ready to get to work. Let’s roll up our sleeves and never stop growing.”

Not only did she graduate in just three years, but along the way she took

You probably know that food is linked to health. But do you know that food can actually heal? Backed by JWU, the Food Innovation Nexus (the FIX) is a new venture exploring, prototyping, and launching products that live at the intersection of food and health. Experts from food science, design, medicine, and marketing work together to create things like natural remedies for coughs and colds and healthy snacks made to be consumed on-thego, like hummus pods. They work with students in classes like Food Product Innovation, which allow you to explore consumer needs and wants and then develop products around them. From product concept to production and manufacturing, FIX will help you to immerse yourself in the real world of food innovation.

cornerstones of a JWU education.

We encourage students to engage with Experiential Education & Career Services from day one. As we get to know you, we’ll discover your strengths and interests, and become better able to connect you to companies and experiences you’ll love. And our career management courses will prepare you to be interview-ready for our many on-campus recruiting events.

E A R N I T. Internships are a core part of our academic programs. We don’t just treat them as an elective, or a way to spend the summer between your junior and senior year. They are just as important as any class, with full academic credit and the opportunity to learn valuable lessons, the kind you can only get through firsthand experience. But more importantly, they are a way to launch your career. Last year, 74% of JWU students received a job offer at the end of their paid internship. More than 3,482 JWU students interned at nearly 1,847 companies worldwide. Here’s what a few of them had to say: Kelly Gilpin, JWU grad who is developing a gluten-free donut for Dunkin’ Brand: “Internships are so different at JWU. You’re

a contributing member of the team...they actually created a position—R&D Technologist— for me. I finished my degree at JWU ... And started at Dunkin’ the very next day.” Marquis Cooper, revenue agent intern with the IRS: “I had the opportunity to assist IRS agents with conducting interviews with taxpayers, CPAs and representatives, to inquire about earnings, deductions, and other items being audited on returns.” Corey Clark, intern at Hasbro: “I loved going to work at Hasbro. And I knew that this JWU internship would be a great way to ‘test out’ the corporate scene, to determine whether or not this would be a good fit for me.”

WORK K AROOM BROWN

JWU students have a reputation among potential employers for being professional directly out of college. But it’s not just because of the classes they take and hands-on work here on campus. It’s because our goal is to instill the kind of work ethic that makes students proud of what they do. It makes them love their chosen industry. And, in turn, it makes the industry love us back.

“J W U R E A L LY C R E AT E S A W O R K F O R C E T H AT K N O W S H O W T O W O R K , I S PA S S I O N AT E A B O U T I T, A N D R E A L LY D E V E L O P S T H O S E PA S S I O N S W I T H I N I N D I V I D UA L S T O GO INTO THE RE AL WORLD AND MAKE A CONTRIBUTION R E L AT I V E LY Q U I C K LY.” LESLIE FERRIER ’90, MOMOFUKU HR

It helps that we have fostered relationships with some of the biggest companies around. That means they’ll be a constant presence at career fairs, regularly hire JWU interns, provide guest speakers, host industry panels, and more.

BILLIOND O L L A R SUCCESS

As one of ten brothers and sisters, Karoom Brown ’00 had to put in what felt like ten times the effort to become the first in his family to graduate from college. He always had a passion to excel and exceed, and when he brought that passion to Johnson & Wales, he began a journey that would lead to him handling billion-dollar contracts. But the road wasn’t always smooth. He had to hold down a full-time job with Lucent Technologies, Inc., while attending school as an undergraduate, which caused his grades to suffer. “In order for me to be able to work full time at Lucent and finish my degree on time, the professors and the school offered extra tutoring and flexible classes,” says Karoom. “But part of my success came from graduating with experience and a degree.” Eventually he turned his grades around, and

pursued his Master of Science in Information Systems Management from New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, where he graduated valedictorian. Karoom has since worked his way to the top of his field, as the Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development of Leidos Health. And he attributes much of his success to the practical skills gained and support given during his time at JWU. Now he aims to apply his work ethic to helping others, and volunteers with the Paralyzed Veterans of America, The Wounded Warrior Project, and Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health. Meaning the work that he started at JWU will affect the lives of many that come after him.

JWU BRIDGE The BRIDGE (Building Relationships, Intercultural Dialogue & Global Engagement) does exactly what the name suggests—brings together students with diverse backgrounds. Though the physical center is located on the Providence campus, its spirit extends across all our locations, with events and opportunities at all four campuses. Through educational programs, cultural events, and social activities, students—especially international students—are given opportunities to engage with one another to promote cross-cultural awareness and the free exchange of ideas. In other words, you’ll meet new people, and likely even make some new friends.

THE GOAL OF VEX R OB O T IC S I S R E L AT I V E LY S T R A I G H T F O R WA R D : B U I L D A ROBOT TO COMPETE A G A I N S T A N O T H E R R O B O T.

But the planning, engineering, and strategy behind the goal is decidedly more complicated. Which is exactly why a group of JWU Engineering students were up to the challenge. When robotics engineering major Manuel Rosado ’19 first thought of starting a Vex Robotics team at JWU, he never dreamed he’d be competing in the World Championship before senior year. “I came to JWU knowing that there was a Robotics Engineering major here, and now I’m building this robotics club and going to competitions to show the outside world that JWU has a great engineering department,” says Rosado. It was only three months prior to the championship that the team took part in their first robotics competition. They continued to place better and better at each competition until they were invited to compete against teams from around the world. Robotics has the potential to be incredibly important in guiding the economic, social, and environmental future, and JWU students are ready to help lead the charge. Says club advisor and instructor Vidyasagar Sivalingam: “Engineering is nothing if you don’t apply it to the real world, and they’re making a mark in the engineering world.” 1 7

MORE THAN 30,000 COLLEGE STUDENTS LIV E IN PROV IDE NCE , AROUND 8,500 OF WHOM AT T E N D J W U .

It’s also home to artists, professionals, leaders, and innovators, making it a culturally diverse urban experience. The city has more restaurants per capita than any other city, many of which were founded and staffed by our graduates. They call Providence the “Creative Capital” for a reason: it has a thriving

music, arts, and theater scene, and has been ranked “America’s Favorite City” by Travel + Leisure. Providence is home to our original campus, founded in 1914, and is the largest of the university’s four campuses in size and enrollment. It’s actually composed of two separate campuses: Downcity and Harborside, both of which offer unique experiences that are still distinctly JWU. And don’t worry, shuttles run between the campuses, free of charge for students.

JOHN J. BOWEN CENTER FOR SCIENCE A N D I N N O VAT I O N

CUISINART CENTER FOR CULINARY E XC E L L E N C E

Students need room to get a little creative. To get messy, to try new things, to work together to do more than just acquire new knowledge, but to learn how to approach problem solving. Downcity’s John J. Bowen Center for Science and Innovation is just that kind of place. Home to the College of Engineering & Design and the John Hazen White College of Arts & Sciences’ biology program, the LEED-certified facility was constructed to be a collaborative space, with design studios, makerspaces, and shared learning spaces where students from all disciplines can come together to study, work, and share ideas.

One of the more recognizable buildings on our Harborside Campus is the 82,000 square foot LEEDcertified Cuisinart Center for Culinary Excellence. With a globally recognized focus on sustainable food practices and food safety, the center is dedicated to the art and science of culinary and pastry, food’s connection to health, and sustainable nutrition. Students can immerse themselves in the cooking traditions of different cultures, and even use their talents to help nourish underserved communities. There are also spaces dedicated to the study of wine production, mixology, and microbrewing— essentially everything you need to graduate as an in-demand young food professional.

OUR NORTH MIAMI CAMPUS IS L O C AT E D H A L F WAY B E T W E E N FO R T L AU D E R DA L E A N D DOWNTOWN MIAMI, AND JUST T WO MILE S FROM THE BE ACH .

This means you’ll enjoy a college experience unlike many others. You’ll get to explore a mix of shopping, arts, cuisine, and entertainment that reflects South Florida’s incredibly diverse population,

and Miami’s reputation as an upscale tourist destination. Our 29-acre North Miami campus is a close-knit community where approximately 1,500 students work, live, and play together, taking full advantage of the area’s sun, sand, and culture. The tropical landscape even has an edible garden, where culinary students can sample and utilize a wide variety of indigenous fruits and vegetables.

A N I N T E R N AT I O N A L D E S T I N AT I O N Miami is known as an international tourist destination. But did you know that it’s also home to the largest concentration of international banks in the U.S., and referred to as the “Cruise Capital of the World?” That means access to internships and job opportunities unlike any other place in the country, whether you’re studying hospitality, business, or any of our 20+ majors.

FIRST IN DIVERSIT Y University-wide, JWU is one of the most diverse institutions in the country. That’s especially so in North Miami, as The Wall Street Journal recently ranked the campus first in diversity among colleges in the south, and third nationwide. Our goal has always been to create an inclusive campus no matter your race, ethnicity, or socio-economic status, and our international student population continues to grow, currently representing 42 countries.

T H E C A M P U S I S O N LY A 10 MINUTE DRIVE FROM DOWNTOWN AND 25 MINUTE DRIVE TO THE BASE OF THE ROCKIES.

With 300 days a year of sunshine, you can take advantage of nearby skiing, climbing, or hiking opportunities; or explore trendy boutiques and art galleries, head to a show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, or take in a game from one of Denver’s seven professional sports teams.

A designated historic landmark, the newly renovated Centennial Hall could easily be mistaken for a castle, though it’s actually home to classrooms, student activity spaces, and a large auditorium, among other things. Even though we’re located minutes from downtown Denver, the architecture and greenspace of the JWU campus makes it seem worlds away.

GETTING IN THE GAMES Being surrounded by summer and winter recreation can have advantages beyond fun day trips. Our faculty are plugged into the hottest cold-weather events, like Chef Adam Sacks’ work preparing food for the athletes of the Winter Olympics, and Hospitality Associate Professor Sean Daly’s work with the Paralympics and X Games. And we regularly place students in positions at these events—you could be next.

SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER (SBDC) Located on JWU Denver’s campus, the SBDC connects students and faculty to community clients, who come to the center for free advice and guidance on business plans, marketing, and more. The center allows students to not only get a head start on getting ahead, but engage with real business owners and learn more about what it takes to launch your own company. Though it’s primarily used by business and hospitality students, it’s open to all. 3 1

JWU CHARLOTTE

OUR CAMPUS IS IN THE H E A R T O F T H E Q U E E N C I T Y,

walking distance to the BB&T Ballpark, Bank of America Stadium, 7th Street Public Market, Romare Bearden Park, the EPICENTRE Entertainment Complex, and more. Beyond the social opportunities like arts and shopping, Charlotte has been ranked among the best places for business, so it’s also one of the best places to launch your career.

The campus was established as a joint effort between the university, the city, and industry partners, meaning JWU Charlotte is incredibly plugged into downtown. There’s even a DoubleTree Hilton Hotel on campus where hospitality students can hone their craft, and a Student Innovation Lab, where business students can brainstorm ideas for presentations and entrepreneurial undertakings.

THE SPORTS SCENE

THE FOOD SCENE

Sports, Entertainment, Event — Management is one of the more popular majors at JWU Charlotte, and sports is one of the more popular pastimes in the city of Charlotte. There are endless opportunities to get hands-on training from the people who know this industry best. JWU is incredibly connected to the pro sports teams in the Charlotte area, from the Carolina Panthers to the Charlotte Hornets and beyond, making JWU graduates sought after for professional opportunities.

You’ll notice we haven’t yet mentioned the Charlotte restaurant scene. That’s because it deserves a section of its own. The restaurants, bars, and coffee shops in uptown Charlotte are dominated by JWU graduates, as founders, managers, and chefs. As you’ll be taking classes uptown, you’ll be surrounded with opportunities to network, and see first-hand what a JWU diploma can do for you.

It’s an investment, and like any good investment, it should pay off in dividends. That’s why we’re so career-focused; you should graduate trained to take on your craft, and when you succeed, so do we. Last year 91% of our students received institutional scholarships and/or grants from the university, which often makes our tuition less than many other private universities. It also means that we are actively doing everything we can to help you make your dream a reality. Of course, first you have to start, which can seem daunting. That’s why we provide each student a financial planning representative to guide them and their families through the process of financing higher education. You’ll get in-person loan counseling, education, and strategies to make attending JWU financially possible. If you’re ready to work with us, we’ll work for you.
