Diversity Statement

Wake Forest University is a community that seeks to enhance knowledge, opportunities and services that result in a richer and fuller life for those who experience our campus community.  This commitment is strengthened with the recognition by the University that diversity constitutes a broad range of attributes beyond race and gender. The University welcomes and celebrates diversity and inclusion in its decisions regarding recruitment, employment, promotion, transfer, reduction in force, termination, compensation and training and development.

The true value of diversity cannot be measured exclusively by the number of individuals who are unique on our campus, but must also include the welcomed interactions, lively discussions and shared experiences found in the Wake Forest University community.  It is an environment that is conducive to embracing, nurturing and fostering that broad definition of diversity while giving life to our motto, “Pro Humanitate“, for humanity.

The University offers a number of diversity related events. Register for classes through the Professional Development Center, view events through the University Calendar and/or participate in Wake-Up Winston.
