November 26th, 2013 | University Announcement
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.

Wake Forest is delighted to announce the appointment as vice provost of Jennifer Collins, who currently serves as associate provost for academic and strategic initiatives. Collins is also a professor of law, joining the law school faculty in 2003, where her areas of focus are criminal law and family law. She continues to teach courses on gender and the law (to both law students and undergraduates) and legal professionalism; her acclaimed classroom gifts have earned her both of the School’s top teaching awards.
Since taking up the associate-provost role in 2010, Collins has led the successful efforts to establish both the LGBTQ Center and Women’s Center at Wake Forest, organized a visionary year-long series of conversations on campus culture, and this past year spearheaded the university’s new well-being initiative. Last year, she also chaired a campus-wide group discussing expanded use of the WFU Center in Charlotte.
“Jennifer’s remarkable strategic intuition, collaborative gifts, and wide-ranging knowledge of our campus, built on her experience working closely with faculty, students, and staff, makes her an ideal choice as vice provost,” said provost Rogan Kersh. “I’ve been so grateful for her incisive counsel and creative ideas, on everything from online education to our capital campaign, as well as her vision for and profound dedication to enhancing the Wake Forest community.”
In addition to her extensive responsibilities in the provost’s office and law school, Collins serves as a lower-division adviser in the college and was integral to creating the new Faculty Fellows program. She is a valued contributor to Winston-Salem life as well, serving on the board of the Arts Council.
Before arriving at Wake Forest, Collins was a homicide prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, worked in private practice, and clerked on the U.S. Court of Appeals’s Ninth Circuit. Collins earned her JD at Harvard and BA at Yale. She is married to fellow-lawyer Adam Charnes; they have three children, Jake, Lily, and Sam.
