Founders' Day Convocation to be held Feb. 15

Mike Ford

Founders’ Day Convocation will be held Feb. 15 at 4 p.m. in Wait Chapel.  All are invited.

At convocation, the Medallion of Merit will be presented to Michael G. (Mike) Ford, who served on Wake Forest’s staff in several roles throughout a career that spanned from 1981 to his retirement in the summer of 2017. The Medallion of Merit is the highest honor presented by the University.

A 1972 Wake Forest graduate, Ford is well known as a Campus Life leader who rallied students around an extensive array of volunteer and philanthropic efforts, mentored and advised generations of students,  dedicated himself to coaching students to become future leaders, and shared his faith with students in various settings.

At a retirement reception in his honor last summer, Ford told a crowd of colleagues, friends and family: “As I reflect back over my 36 years at Wake Forest, my student-facing work has taken many twists and turns and in the process found many forms and expressions … But one thing has always been a constant for me. I have always felt that my time at Wake Forest has been a calling … God’s calling on my life.”

Also at convocation:

–Faculty awards will be presented in the areas of advising, teaching and service.
–Student’s will present their winning senior orations.
–The Class of 2018 will be honored with a reflective video featuring student testimonials.

A reception hosted by the Office of the Provost will follow in Reynolda Hall’s Green Room immediately after convocation.

Centers and Institutes Leadership Updates

For nearly 10 years, Wake Forest University’s Centers and Institutes have added greatly to the scholarly and creative life of campus, helping enhance both the impact and visibility of faculty engagement across disciplines. Wake Forest salutes and congratulates the faculty and staff who currently serve in, or have recently concluded, directorships and related leadership roles:

  • A new Center is in its planning-grant year, the Center for Functional Materials. Timo Thonhauser and Oana Jurchescu, both of our Department of Physics, serve as Co-planning Directors. The Center aims to bring together faculty from physics, chemistry, engineering and medicine to explore organic electronics, metal-organic framework materials and other next-generation materials.
  • Marianne Magjuka became the Executive Director of the Pro Humanitate Institute in September. Wake Forest thanks Melissa Harris-Perry, who previously served as the Executive Director and whose term as Faculty Director concluded at the end of the fall semester, for her three-year tenure at the helm of PHI and her ongoing direction of the Anna Julia Cooper Center.
  • Recently, Dan Cohen was named John C. Whitaker, Jr. Executive Director of the Center for Innovation, Creativity & Entrepreneurship (ICE), with Paul Pauca taking the helm as ICE Faculty Director. University leaders extend their gratitude to Polly Black, outgoing director, and Bill Conner, who, until recently, served as Faculty Director since ICE’s inception.
