Nominations are now being accepted for the appointment of a new Wake Forest Faculty Athletics Representative (FAR). This is an appointment of a faculty member made by the University President for a term of four years and in its broadest sense, provides a faculty viewpoint in the administration of intercollegiate athletic programs. The FAR reports to the President in the University governance structure and has these major areas of responsibility: academic oversight, student-athlete welfare, administrative responsibilities including representing Wake Forest at meetings of the NCAA and ACC, and compliance.
Among the FAR’s general responsibilities are periodic meetings with the President, Director of Athletics, and other athletics personnel, and student-athletes as needed. The President will evaluate the appointment over the term of the four years.
Nominations and recommendations may be submitted to Mary Pugel in the President’s Office: firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations are due by April 15, 2016.
