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.

In light of recent political uncertainty regarding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and immigration reform, we are committed to supporting all of Wake Forest students, as demonstrated by professional and academic personnel intent on helping undocumented students get the most from their Wake Forest experience.
