Suzanne Reynolds, executive associate dean for academic affairs and professor of law at Wake Forest, kicked off a 10-day visit of a delegation of women leaders from Kosovo to the Triad with a presentation, “Women’s Leadership in Law and Politics,” on Friday, Jan. 10, at the law school.
Selected for her expertise in scholarship and teaching about family law as well as her extensive public service, Reynolds also shared her experiences encountering the “glass ceiling” in her law career. Participants in the program had the opportunity to meet LL.M students from Kosovo currently studying at the Wake Forest law school.
The visit by the delegates from Kosovo is sponsored by the Open World Program and involves working with American counterparts and facilitating continued relations though alumni networks and home hosts. The Open World Program, an exchange and partnership program designed to enhance understanding and cooperation between Eurasian and American leaders, is funded and operated by the Open World Leadership Center, an independent government agency of the U.S. Congress.
Winston-Salem and Greensboro, N.C., are official host cities of the Open World Program and the host organization is Friendship Force of Central North Carolina.

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.
