Campus Support

You’re Among Friends.

The Forest is intentionally small so that the individuals who are drawn here will never be lost in a crowd or see themselves as anything less than a vital part of a true community. Wake Forest takes education personally. That means providing all possible means of supporting students in what can be an exhilarating yet stressful time in a young person’s life.

We are committed to providing a vast network of support services and centers designed both to guide our students throughout their time at Wake Forest and provide outlets of individuality and commonality within a diverse environment rich in perspective, inclusion and open dialogue.

The dedication of the new cultural centers was held Friday November, 4, 2016.

We offer a range of opportunities, including discussion hours, workshops and enhanced student-faculty interactions. Some of our programs are designed as women-only spaces, but most of our initiatives are open to all members of our campus community.

The CARE Team

The Campus Assessment, Response, and Evaluation (CARE) Team serves the Wake Forest University community by evaluating and responding to disruptive, troubling, or threatening behaviors brought to the attention of the Team. As a part of this work the Team also seeks to help identify members of the Wake Forest community who are in need of support, guidance, or other intervention and to refer them to appropriate campus and community resources.

The CARE Team is empowered by the University President to make decisions and take appropriate action in fulfillment of its mission.  The Vice President for Campus Life provides administrative oversight for the Team.

We’re a critical resource for our students, to get connected to help and support across university departments, divisions, and schools. Visit care.wfu.edu for more information.
