A message from President Hatch regarding new University policy

A message from President Hatch to students, faculty and staff:

Wake Forest University is firmly committed to providing an academic and working community free from unlawful discrimination and harassment in all forms. Consistent with Wake Forest’s Notice of Non-discrimination and in compliance with federal statutes and recent Department of Education guidance, the University has implemented a revised Faculty and Staff Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy. The revised policy is effective September 1, 2015 and will apply to reports of sexual misconduct, including gender discrimination and sexual harassment, against a University faculty or staff member on the Reynolda campus. The Faculty and Staff Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy includes information about the various forms of sexual misconduct covered under the policy, how to report an incident of sexual misconduct, resolution and appeal procedures and resources available to members of the Wake Forest community.

In the fall, the Title IX Office and Human Resources will hold open forums so faculty, staff and students may receive additional clarification about the policy. For more information or to report a concern regarding sexual misconduct, please contact the University’s Title IX Coordinator, Tanya Jachimiak.

The University will take seriously every allegation or report of sexual misconduct received. This policy and the University’s response are intended to ensure that all parties involved receive appropriate support and fair treatment, and that allegations of sexual misconduct are handled in a prompt, thorough, and equitable manner.  Thank you for your assistance as together we build a stronger community.

Sincerely,

Nathan O. Hatch
President

The new online tool is available by logging into the secure WIN portal, accessing “WF@Work,” and clicking “Tuition Concession.”  Pre-recorded presentations and user guides for faculty, staff, managers, and department approvers are available in WIN and on the Human Resources website.  Additionally, individual informational sessions may be scheduled by contacting AskHR@nullwfu.edu or 336.758.4700.

The Satellite Program – Let’s All be Winners

By Christy Lennon, senior HR Partner

(Christy Lennon recently penned this article for another outlet about “Project Dream,” which started in 1999 and continues to find success, providing work experience for a special group of students.)

When I was first approached about the “Project Dream” program in 1999, I was fascinated by the concept. The idea was to place high school students in the “Occupational Course of Study Programs” in either unpaid or paid positions on a college campus so they could obtain “real world” work experience while also receiving credit hours towards a high school diploma. I thought to myself, “How can I make this work?”

Beth Ritchie, community-based training coordinator, and Sandra Courtner, job coach for the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools system, were not shy in asking me to do just that for a program still in its infancy. At that time I was manager of Human Resources for the Graylyn Conference Center. We were certainly on a tight financial budget, as many businesses were, but I wanted to learn more.
