Members of the Faculty Fellows program invite all faculty, staff and students to join a demonstration of support for diversity, inclusion, dignity and respect. They will stage the fourth and final photo in the series on the steps of Wait Chapel on Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 11:50 a.m.
The “We Stand for Unity and Respect” photo campaign has grown organically over the last month. The idea originated with a group of Faculty Fellows, who have continued to foster dialogue about important campus issues in the six first-year student residence halls as well as in their classrooms. Each week the number of people in the photo has increased through word of mouth and social media.
“The ‘We Stand for Unity and Respect’ campaign has become a symbol for the campus culture we want people to associate with Wake Forest,” said Vice Provost Lynn Sutton. “The University is working at a number of levels to ensure that each and every member of our community feels like their contributions are valued. Wake Forest provides the ideal setting to explore societal issues in the spirit of Pro Humanitate.”
