We believe in equity, not just equality. Establishing equality means treating everyone the same. Equity necessitates transforming our campus community to meet the needs, interests, and cultural norms of our students, faculty, and staff. Consequently, we understand that in order to develop a fully engaged constituency, individuals must receive equitable treatment instead of equal treatment. Wake Forest provides the resources and environment to support and manage success across all groups, regardless of race/ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identity, age, socioeconomic status, immigration status, sexual orientation, disability and religion.
