The Wake Forest Hazing Prevention Website, Hazing.wfu.edu is now live. The website is designed to provide resources to all members of the Wake Forest Community, including a specific section for our parents and families. These resources include both on-line and telephone reporting hotlines; legal and philosophical definitions of hazing; advice on how to talk to your student about hazing; and current articles and resources to understand the negative implications of hazing in various types of organizations.
We know parents and family members are some of our most important partners in addressing hazing concerns on campus, and we encourage all families to use this new website to learn more about how to prevent hazing and educate your students about resources on campus.
To contact the Office of Family Engagement, please visit our contact page.
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
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.
