Johnson & Wales University has been integrally involved in the Charlotte community since opening in 2004. We proudly support our nonprofit partners through student community service learning, volunteer programs, and in-kind support particularly in the focus areas of hunger, homelessness, and education.
To facilitate the process, Wells Fargo has joined forces with the Charlotte Campus to promote leadership and volunteerism among students, faculty and staff. Our students’ involvement with community activities enhances their knowledge of real-life issues and provides valuable practical experience in ethics, leadership, and social responsibility.
In addition, Community Relations works with Human Resources on the Federal Community Service Work Study Program to provide opportunities to earn work-study awards at nonprofit community partner sites and and with Experiential Education & Career Services to place students at local non-profit organizations.
