Office of Parent Programs now called Family Engagement

Wake Forest’s Office of Parent Programs announced, recently, that it has adopted a new name.  Starting now, it is called the Office of Family Engagement.

According to the office, the change was made to reflect the broad scope of its “work in engaging families in life at Wake Forest—through communications, programs such as our summer New Student Receptions, serving as a resource for the parent and family constituency, fundraising, and more.”

On Aug. 26, the office will have a revamped and redesigned Parents and Families website at

The Office of Family Engagement also has Facebook (Wake Forest Parents and Families) and Twitter accounts (@WFUParents).

The office is led by Minta McNally, associate vice president and executive director.  Other staff include Betsy Chapman, director of family communications and volunteer management; Brad McIlwain, director of family giving; and Jen Bucher, administrative coordinator.
