New Faculty in the Forest Gatherings

updated 9.5.18

New Faculty in the Forest Program

As a new faculty member to Wake Forest, we understand that you probably have general and cursory knowledge of the University and what it has to offer. In August 2013, the College started the “New Faculty in the Forest” program, designed to help new faculty be more thoroughly acclimated to the institution. This year-long, optional program was a way to connect new faculty to different offices on campus – both student-serving and faculty-serving in nature – through a series of monthly, interactive meetings.  The 2019-2020 program is open to faculty members in their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd years at Wake Forest.

The program is organized into a “student-facing” theme in the fall term and a “faculty-serving” theme in the spring term.
