Let us Strive for a Collective Commitment to Equity

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion supports the University’s mission of creating a more diverse learning community. Developmental and proactive in its approach, as well as reactive to the constant challenges to inclusion and equity in our community and in our society, ODI organizes its efforts around offering compelling and representative programming, influencing and enhancing equitable policies, and elevating and informing inclusive practices. These efforts promote a safe, growth-minded, and engaged campus community, wherein students, staff, and faculty – within and across multiple identities – can feel supported and valued in their academic, social, and professional endeavors. Ultimately, ODI recognizes that “diversity” is not enough, and “inclusion” is but a step towards the ultimate goal of sustaining “equity” for all members of our community.

Religious Days of Observance

The Wake Forest Office of the Chaplain holds a Peace Pole ceremony in the Sutton Center to pray for peace worldwide.

Please be aware that several members of our community observe certain holy days. Faculty, staff, student group leaders and organizers should consider this Resource of Holy Days when making curricular and co-curricular plans for AY 2021-2022.
