Project Wake: Exploring Difference, Embracing Diversity

Homework before school starts? Yes, please!

At Wake Forest, there is a long tradition of incoming students engaging in a common reading or academic project. Along with raising awareness of vital political, cultural or social issues, this gives students the opportunity to engage in intellectual dialogue on a topic of interest with their new peers and professors. In May, you will receive a list of the 2015 summer reading options chosen because they illuminate diverse cultural, historical or personal experiences. You will have the opportunity to select one of these books to read over the summer, and then — once on campus — to participate in a discussion led by a Wake Forest faculty or staff member who has a special expertise or interest in the book’s topic.

Check back at the end of May for a list of reading options and sign up form!
