RISE Up Roger Williams


RWU has always been about a shared connection and a belief that we are stronger when we work together and support each other.

The RWU community is addressing the needs of students and actioning plans to meet current needs in response to the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19.

You can join us and consider making a gift to a fund that will help us to meet these needs.
