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.

A month of Latinx Heritage events and activities begins on Sept. 15th and continues until Oct. 15th at Wake Forest.

Students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to participate in the wide variety of activities featured on this year’s event calendar that uplift and illustrate Latinx culture, history, and issues.
