Emergency Management Plan Training
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recognizes September as National Preparedness Month to encourage and remind people to be better prepared for disasters or emergencies in their homes, businesses and communities. JWU is committed to educating and preparing its community by providing the necessary resources to react and respond to a variety of emergency situations that may occur. All JWU full- and part-time faculty and staff members are asked to take the online Emergency Management Plan (EMP) training by October 31, 2019. This is an annual requirement by the university. Instructions to access the training are included in the recent memo sent by Christopher Harwood, director of emergency management.

This road may be out of service for up to four weeks; however, every effort is being made by the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority to reduce that time frame.

NECHE Open Forums for Faculty and Staff
