Recruiting faculty and staff volunteers for Adopt-A-Deac program

The following is a guest post from the Office of Student Engagement in partnership with the Office of Wellbeing and Intercultural Center.

The Wellbeing Office, Intercultural Center and Office of Student Engagement are collaborating to bring Adopt-A-Deac back to the campus! Two lamp posts with white banners showing the "Show Humanitate" logo of a gold heart and the letter "U"The Adopt-A-Deac program was introduced in the spring 2020 semester to provide individual caring support and outreach to Wake Forest University students during the pandemic. This semester, we are again seeking compassionate faculty and staff mentors to join this network.

Faculty and staff volunteers will be matched with students based on opt-in form responses. Participants will interact with students multiple times a week to respond to questions, connect them with University resources and provide needed support.

Our teams will provide information, resources and training to set you up for success in these partnerships. Our students need us, and we hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to help the Wake Forest community!
