Dear WSSU Students:

Winston-Salem State University is a community where people from diverse backgrounds are welcomed and embraced. We strive to create a healthy, safe, and productive environment that allows our students to grow and thrive. The WSSU Student Handbook is a valuable resource that provides you with comprehensive information to help you navigate the university during your time here. Please familiarize yourself with the policies, services, rights and responsibilities, and any other information that you deem pertinent to your needs.

It is my sincere hope and expectation that you will take the time to read it, place it in a safe place, and refer back to it whenever necessary. Please feel free to reach out to my office or to any of the resource offices listed in this book to find assistance and guidance.

Best wishes to all of you,

Dr. Mel C. Johnson-Norwood
Associate Provost and Vice Chancellor
