A Message from President Wente and Provost Gillespie

To the Wake Forest community:

After three years of dedicated service to Wake Forest, Jane Aiken has decided to step away from her role as Dean of the School of Law on July 31, 2022. Dean Aiken will be on a research leave working on issues of the criminalization of the exercise of reproductive rights as Consulting Counsel with National Advocates for Pregnant Women. The issue of criminalization of women’s self-protection is the subject of Dean Aiken’s scholarly writing and teaching for her entire career, and we understand her desire to engage in those issues in a direct way. After this research leave, Dean Aiken will return to the faculty as a University Professor. We look forward to having her back in the Wake Forest community at that time. Read more

There will be no parking on the hill (by the bookstore shed) during this time to reduce congestion.
