Twenty-one University faculty members will serve as faculty fellows in first-year residence halls in 2017-18.
The faculty fellows program increases faculty-student engagement by promoting informal, regular interactions between students and faculty in the residence halls for first-year students. The program fosters exceptional faculty-student engagement and helps to educate the whole person through enriching the intellectual, cultural, and social lives of the first-year students.

Wake Forest prioritizes engagement inside and outside of the classroom. With an 11:1 student-faculty ratio and national recognition, like the U.S. News #11 ranking for undergraduate teaching, the Faculty Fellows program is an extension of the University’s teacher-scholar model.

Associate professor Barbara Lentz has been selected by the third-year class to be honored with the Wake Forest University School of Law Student Bar Association’s 2013 Jurist Excellence in Teaching Award.
Lentz has been teaching writing, drafting and art law courses to JD and international LLM students for more than a decade. She has developed an art law capstone course, which will be tied to an externship placement next year, and she has taught Comparative Art Law in London and in the Cross Disciplinary Professional Development course in Nicaragua.
Lentz has been selected by the University to serve as a Faculty Fellow and by the Institute for Public Engagement as an ACE Fellow. She is a faculty adviser to the Wake Forest Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law and has been a coach to the ABA national moot court teams for several years.
Dean Blake D. Morant made the announcement during the law school’s Hooding Ceremony on May 19. Security officer Charlie Digerolamo, affectionately known as Officer “D,” was chosen as Staff Member of the Year.
The ACE Fellows Program, in partnership with the Institute for Public Engagement, the Teaching and Learning Center, and the Dean of the College, provides support for selected faculty fellows interested in incorporating service-learning into their courses.
The program provides stipends of $1,250 as well as services designed to enhance teaching and enrich learning. ACE Fellows have the opportunity to work with new and veteran ACE Fellows as they establish relationships with community partners, develop syllabi, and assess pedagogical strategies and outcomes.
Here’s a list of the ACE Fellows and the courses in which they plan to integrate service-learning classes: Read more
