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.

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.

A message from President Nathan Hatch to Wake Forest faculty and staff:
All of us at Wake Forest University benefit from being part of Winston-Salem, the “city of arts and innovation.” One major factor behind this area’s vibrancy – and a cause that we hope you’ll join in supporting – is the Arts Council of Winston-Salem.
Wake Forest University officially comes to faculty and staff twice a year for major fundraising campaigns outside of our own development efforts: one is for the United Way, and the other is for the Arts Council. We hope you will take a moment to consider supporting the 2015 Arts Council Campaign by clicking on this link to make your own tax-deductible contribution.
I am pleased that Erica Still, Associate Professor of English, has agreed to join me in leading our campus Arts Council campaign this year. In accepting my request to give leadership to this effort, Erica stated in a particularly compelling way why she supports the arts in our community:
