Let’s embrace the strength in our differences

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion supports the University’s mission of creating a more diverse learning community. Specifically, the Office and related Centers aims to influence policies, offer programming, and facilitate practice across the broad spectrum of inclusivity and equity. These aims promote a safe, equitable, growth-minded, and engaged campus community, wherein students, staff, and faculty – within and across multiple identities – can feel supported and valued in their personal and professional development.

Holy 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, and student group leaders and organizers should consider this Resource of Holy Days when making curricular and co-curricular plans for AY 2019-2020.
