Deac families, there is a wonderful opportunity coming up next week for your students to be involved in a conversation about the campus culture of Wake Forest. We want and need their voices represented, so I hope that if you think this would interest them, you will pass it on to them.
This is one of the “Deliberative Dialogue” events on campus. This will be a deliberation open to the campus community on Thursday evening, Feb. 28th focused on the issue of Diversity and Inclusion at Wake Forest. This event, co-sponsored by the Institute for Public Engagement, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of the Dean of the College, and the Office of the Provost is a follow-up to last year’s deliberation on campus culture (see recap of that here). The issue of inclusion was the one where participants last year felt we needed to keep talking and dig deeper. This is a Faces of Courage event, part of the year-long commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of integration at Wake Forest.
Registration and access to the issue guide is now available through the following link: http://college.wfu.edu/politics/diversityandinclusion/
Participants need to register so that we know how many people to plan for and can assign them to diverse break out groups. Registration will close on Feb. 26th.
It will be important to have a broad representation of students, faculty and staff participate in this dialogue. We hope your students will attend!
