Provost: Announcement regarding Innovation Quarter

Message from Provost Rogan Kersh sent by e-mail to faculty and staff:

For the better part of a year now, many groups across campus — University leaders, faculty, staff and students — have been engaged in conversations about plans for an undergraduate academic presence in Wake Forest Innovation Quarter.

While we had not planned to make a public announcement until January 2016, we have learned there could be a local media story as early as this afternoon. We are committed to the faculty governance process to consider proposed academic programs and plan to continue conversations throughout the academic year to refine program delivery. The University will share the statement below today (not included on Inside WFU), and it will also be posted at
