Campus Announcements


Redesigned JWU IDs
This summer, the Johnson & Wales University ID card was redesigned. New JWU faculty, staff and students arriving to campus after August 20 are being issued the new ID card. Returning faculty and staff do not need to replace their JWU ID card.

The new design more prominently displays the cardholder’s photograph and name for easier identification; it also reflects our new brand campaign. Attached is an example of the redesigned JWU ID card. For questions, please contact JWU ID Services at 401-598-1433.


Office Wall Hangings
Facilities Management will no longer hang any personal items or anything used to decorate or personalize an office space. If a JWU employee is looking to hang a personal item on an office wall, they may do so; however, Facilities Management recommends that it be done with 3M Command Adhesive products only. Please do not use fasteners that must be drilled into walls made of drywall, plaster and brick. For more information, please see a recent memo from Jason Witham, executive director of facilities, design & construction.
