The Institute, through a careful and deliberative process, publishes restatements of various law and propositions for legal reform. The purpose of a restatement is to provide clarity for courts as to the meaning of different laws. Marsh will have primary responsibility for the volume entitled “Titles and Transfers,” which will tentatively include title recording, real estate transactions and mortgages.

This message was sent to faculty and staff on behalf of Basketball Coach Danny Manning:
During my short time at Wake Forest I have appreciated the focus on health and well-being as well as the commitment to build community and spirit across campus.
We want to help make Wake Forest a special place by encouraging communication and engagement with one another. To assist with this goal, I would like to invite you to attend our home basketball game at the Coliseum at 7 p.m. on Dec. 22 versus Bucknell. Each faculty and staff employee will receive tickets and Wake Forest Athletics t-shirts for their immediate family.
Tickets will be distributed starting at 5:30 p.m. at tables marked Faculty/Staff in the Coliseum’s main lobby. Staff and faculty may come to the tables to show their Wake Forest ID card to request the number of tickets needed for their family.
I hope to see you at the game. Go Deacs!

A message from Facilities and Campus Services:
To conserve energy over the winter holiday period, the facilities department will be implementing a temperature setback program of campus buildings starting the night of Dec. 23 until the morning of Jan. 2. The setback program will maintain building temperatures at no less than 55 degrees during the holiday period. Since the University will be largely unoccupied during the nine day period, we anticipate the lower temperatures will not cause undue hardship. At the same time, this program will generate significant cost savings through reduced energy consumption. The program has saved over $241,000.00 in energy costs over the last six years.
Beginning at 2 a.m. on Jan. 2, heating systems will gradually return the buildings to comfortable conditions. We intend for all buildings to be at 70 degrees by the time employees arrive at work on Jan. 2. Facilities technicians will arrive early on that date to ensure building heating systems reactivate as scheduled.
Staff or faculty who intend to visit or work on campus during the holiday period are advised to wear appropriately warm clothing and consider bringing a light jacket or sweater to work.
For departments that would like an exemption from this temperature setback for justifiable cause, please contact Ed Bullington at firstname.lastname@example.org or 758-3913 as soon as possible.
Thank you for supporting this effort to save energy during the holiday period.

As part of the McCreary Fieldhouse Project, improvements are being made to the cross country trails. These include re-grading and leveling the trails. New soil and washed stone will be added to improve the surface of the trails. This work will be done over winter break, so all of the cross country trails will be closed from Dec. 15 – Jan. 9.
We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, contact Wendy Wooten at 336-758-5689.

As Wake Forest’s winter break approaches, University officials encourage students, faculty and staff to contact the Student Health Service if any are planning travel to a country where Ebola has prompted a public health crisis.
The reminder comes at a time when Wake Forest continues closely monitoring the international Ebola situation.
In accordance with guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there is still no Wake Forest funded or sponsored travel to regions with an Ebola travel advisory in place. While the University does not have a policy restricting personal travel to countries affected by this virus, the CDC has issued a Level 3 Travel Warning recommending against non-essential travel, including travel for educational purposes to Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. The Student Health Service is prepared to meet with students, faculty and staff considering personal travel to those countries.

Professor and Wake Forest’s Composer-in-Residence Dan Locklair’s “Canzona for the Music Makers” for 15 players will be performed by the University Orchestra with David Hagy conducting tonight, Dec. 3, at 7:30 p.m.
Locklair’s “O Magnum Mysterium” (from his Three Christmas Motets), will be performed by the University Concert Choir, led by Brian Gorelick, on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m.
“Canzona for the Music Makers” was commissioned by the Charlotte Symphony as part of the orchestra’s educational partnership with the school. More about the music and the project is available here.
Three Christmas Motets, which were recorded and broadcast (BBC Radio 3) by the BBC Singers last December, is one of Locklair’s most popular choral works. The piece was originally composed for and has been dedicated to the Wake Forest Concert Choir and Brian Gorelick.
Both performances will be held in Brendle Recital Hall and the events are free and open to the public.
