2016-17 Wake Forest Fellows selected

Wake Forest Fellows for 2016-17

Twelve seniors will remain in the Wake Forest campus community following graduation in May as Wake Forest Fellows.  They will work in offices across campus, including the President’s Office, the Pro Humanitate Institute, the Z. Smith Reynolds Library and the Office of Personal and Career Development.

Since 2008, the Wake Forest Fellows program has provided exceptional Wake Forest college graduates with the opportunity to work in higher education administration for a year. Each fellow will serve as a full-time Wake Forest employee, starting this summer.  In addition to working with top administrators in a particular department, the fellows will participate in leadership activities and interact with faculty, staff and students to learn about the inner workings of higher education.

“We’re welcoming a class of Fellows that has excelled across the campus in academics, in service, and in leadership,” said Marybeth Wallace, special assistant to President Nathan O. Hatch.  “We can’t wait to feel all of that youthful energy in our offices.”
This group also represents the first time that fellowships have been arranged for Reynolda House Museum of American Art, the Pro Humanitate Institute and Wake Downtown: Biomedical Sciences and Engineering.

The Wake Forest Fellows for 2016-17 are:

  • Olivia Clark: Reynolda House (Ellicott City, Md.), History/minor, Italian
  • Kent Garrett: Information Systems (Noblesville, Ind.), Sociology/minors, Journalism and Entrepreneurship
  • Brian Hart: Dean of the College (Oxford, N.C), Politics and International Affairs
  • Millicent Hennessey: President’s Office (New York, N.Y.), Chinese Language and Culture
  • Sarah Hoyle: Personal and Career Development (Clemmons, N.C.), Politics and International Affairs
  • Kylie Kinder: START Gallery (Oak Park, Calif.), Art History and Psychology
  • Alexa King: Campus Life (Dallas, Texas), Psychology/minor, Health and Human Services
  • Sophia (Sophie) Leveque: Z. Smith Reynolds Library (Newport Beach, Calif.), Communication and English
  • Alexa King: Campus Life (Dallas, Texas), Psychology/minor, Health and Human Services
  • Aishwarya (Ash) Nagar: Wake Downtown/Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (New Delhi, India), Biology/minors, Religion, Neuroscience, Philosophy
  • Chanel Shulman: Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center (Myrtle Beach, S.C.), Psychology and Economics
  • Terry (T.J.) Smith: Provost’s Office (Greensboro, N.C.), Politics and International Studies
  • Camry Wilborn: Pro Humanitate Institute (Winston-Salem, N.C.), Politics and International Studies and Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies/minor, Communication

“My selection as a fellow means that I have been given a tremendous opportunity to continue to learn and grow while simultaneously giving back to the institution I have to come to love,” said T.J. Smith.  “I have the chance to be mentored by a cadre of esteemed leaders in what will be the developmental opportunity of a lifetime.”

As a fellow, Smith said, he expects “to gain a new insight and perspective into how the strategic direction and inner mechanics of the University come together to move our community forward.”

Alumni of the Wake Forest Fellows program have pursued careers in law, medicine, public policy and more. Several have since received prestigious academic awards such as Rhodes and Fulbright scholarships.

Applications available to faculty and staff for summer institute

This is a guest post from Jose’ Villalba, associate dean of the College:

Please consider joining your colleagues for the first Summer Institute for Intercultural Professional Development and Pedagogy, June 15 and 16, at the Graylyn International Conference Center. This 2-day retreat, sponsored by the Office of the Provost, is intended for faculty and staff across the Reynolda campus who are interested in better understanding campus climate concerns, diversity and inclusion practices, and connecting with a broad range of colleagues. The retreat will provide the space and time necessary to deliberately explore pedagogical ideas, philosophical differences, and personal accounts related to issues of diversity and inclusion in collegiate settings, including but not limited to student experiences, the cultural context of student-faculty-staff relationships, and the experiences of those who play crucial (and sometimes forgotten) roles in shaping our campus and greater community.

Attendees will need to commit to spending 2 days and 1 night in this retreat-like setting at the Graylyn International Conference Center. The intent behind this requirement rests in the strong belief that an uninterrupted opportunity to “sit” with these complex issues will help clarify paths to move forward as we all strive to make Wake Forest University the type of community that values the different voices, experiences, and perspectives that make up our extended community.

All food and single-occupancy lodging expenses for participants will be covered by the Provost’s office; however, funding is only available for 20 participants. Consequently an application (see link below) needs to be completed in order to be considered for this opportunity. And all interested individuals must complete their application by April 30th, 2016. You will be notified of your application status no later than May 15th. And please understand that once you have accepted an invitation to participate in the Institute, you will be expected to attend.

If you have any questions about the Institute, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Thanks again for all that you do for our greater campus community.
