21 faculty members to serve as fellows in residence halls

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.

Faculty Fellows work closely with first-year residents throughout the academic year, creating programs, hosting dinners and interacting with students in their assigned residence halls.

Gladding makes training video at ACA conference

Sam GladdingAlexander Street Press and the American Counseling Association (ACA) just released a video of  Sam Gladding, chair and professor of counseling, conducting a 90-minute group counseling session before a live audience at last year’s ACA conference in Cincinnati. The video is titled “Promoting Growth within a Group: Performing in the Here and Now.” This is the sixth training video Gladding has made for ASP, and it will be available as part of the ASP streaming service in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.

Gladding was assisted by four members of the Wake Forest counseling department: Jose Villalba, Nathaniel Ivers, Brian Calhoun, and Pamela Karr.

“I live in a great department with supportive and cooperative members,” Gladding said. “I am pleased with how the group demonstration went, how the film turned out, and with the wonderful behavior of my colleagues. There was no script, so everything was unrehearsed and ‘live.'”
