Who We Are

Roger Williams University is an independent, co-educational institution with a focus on undergraduate learning, paired with strong, related master's degree programs. The University is also home to Rhode Island's only law school. At RWU, liberal arts education is paired with education for the professions, providing an interdisciplinary educational model where both courses of study are enhanced by their integration and the recognition of their unity.

No matter what their major, all Roger Williams students develop the problem solving, reasoning, communications and teamwork attributes that employers seek. Outside the classroom, our students avail themselves of a full complement of co-curricular, athletic, social and experiential, pre-professional opportunities and resources -- all on a beautiful, 143-acre waterfront campus.

Roger Williams University is a mission-based organization where you will find a community of citizen scholars who are committed to collaboration, diverse perspectives, community service, respect for sustainability and promotion of civil discourse. A set of core values serves as the foundation for all we do and all we are.
