Building University Inclusion and Leadership through Diversity (B.U.I.L.D.) is a weeklong immersion program in Winston-Salem that introduces first-year students to concepts of social justice, intercultural communication and social change. Students will work in teams to learn about the various, vibrant cultural communities in Winston-Salem. With their upper-class mentors, incoming students will consider their role and responsibility as citizens in Winston-Salem, identify social justice themes and learn more about strategies for intercultural communication. Students will visit nonprofit organizations, museums and local agencies. Join the Pro Humanitate Institute staff and upper-class leaders for this fun, exciting introduction to life at Wake Forest.
