The following message is from Provost Rogan Kersh and Senior Vice President Hof Milam:
We are pleased to announce that the university plans to implement a centralized, campus-wide license for Event Management System (EMS) for scheduling of non-classroom space on campus. This software will allow us to manage space far more effectively, provide a user-friendly process for reserving conference rooms and other space, and collect/utilize accurate usage data.
As a result of Strategic Resource Initiative (SRI) work this past year, we realized that more than 30 individual space managers across campus were utilizing various practices for scheduling space. After assessing our current processes and costs, EMS was identified as the best solution for efficiency and ease of use. In addition, by consolidating existing EMS licenses and maintenance fees currently held by several groups on campus, we are saving the university thousands of dollars.
A cross-campus implementation team will spend the next 6-8 months working with space managers across campus to implement the software. Our grateful thanks to this team, whose members are:
- Mike Ayuso, IS
- Sean Brittain, Facilities & Campus Services
- James Buckley, Campus Life
- Alisa Elmore, Admissions
- Kettie Fickter, Athletics
- Max Floyd, Campus Life
- Karen Frekko, School of Business
- Beth Hoagland, Provost’s Office
- Trevor Hughes, School of Law
- Mary Beth Lock, ZSR Library
- Sharon Melnik, Conference Services
- Harold Pace, University Registrar
- Randy Rogan, College
- John Wise, Hospitality and Auxiliary Services
We are looking forward to reaping the benefits of this approach to space management.

The following is a message from President Hatch to the campus community:
At Wake Forest University, civility is more than formal courtesy. It is a basic expectation that we will treat all human beings with kindness and respect. It is the backbone of our motto, Pro Humanitate.
Last week, the Chronicle of Higher Education published an article titled, “As Slurs and Offenses Multiply, Colleges Scramble to Respond.” The article details several instances of bias and intolerance occurring on college campuses across the country. From offensive theme parties to graffiti and vandalism, insensitive and threatening behavior appear prevalent in places committed to opening minds and hearts. This is hard to understand and impossible to accept. Continue reading »

A message from President Nathan Hatch:
Soon, we will have an opportunity to honor longtime Vice President and Dean for Student Affairs Ken Zick. I invite the campus community to gather on Monday, April 29, in Reynolda Hall’s Green Room for a reception recognizing Ken, who will step down from his administrative responsibilities this summer.
The reception is scheduled from 3:30 to 5 p.m., with remarks and a short program at 4 p.m. Please join us as we express our appreciation to Ken for more than 30 years of service to the University.
I am pleased to add that Ken will remain an active member of the University community. After a much-deserved one-year leave of absence, Ken will be teaching and participating in other administrative assignments at Wake Forest.
I encourage you to place this special event on your calendars. I look forward to seeing you at the reception.
