Family Engagement

a site for Wake Forest parents and families

Office of Family Engagement (formerly Parent Programs)

The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members.  The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.  The office also plans summer New Student Receptions for incoming freshmen, runs the Parents’ Campaign of the Wake Forest Fund, works with our Parents’ Council, and more.

You may contact the Office of Family Engagement any time you have questions or need assistance: email parents@nullwfu.edu, call 336.758.4237, or contact one of our staff members below.

NOTE: most administrative offices work on a Monday-Friday 8:30am-5 pm schedule.  However, if you have an urgent need to reach someone at the university because you have a concern that must be addressed quickly, we have designated the University Police as our 24/7 contact.  They can assess the situation and determine who best to address your concern. The 24-hour contact number for  University Police number, 336.758.5591 (non emergency) or 336.758.5911 (emergency). They can get in touch with on-call duty staff 24-hours/day.
