Students in Michele Gillespie’s history class took a closer look at the work of Wake Forest staff and faculty this semester as part of their study of the history of work in America.
For an oral-history project called “Wake at Work,” students interviewed about 20 staff members and professors about their backgrounds and jobs and how their jobs influenced their perception of the American dream. Transcripts of the interviews are now available on the Z. Smith Reynolds Library website. Audio recordings of many of the interviews are also available at the same website.
Using the University as an example of the contemporary workplace exposed students to a variety of jobs before they began their journey back to colonial days to trace how work — individually and collectively — has shaped American history and expectations about the American Dream today, Gillespie said.

Wake Forest University recently approved a Smoke Free Policy for the Reynolda Campus.
The policy continues to support buildings as smoke-free and prohibits smoking within 25 feet of building doorways and entrances.
Employees are permitted to leave their work place to smoke outside during designated breaks and lunch periods. Portable smoking urns have been provided to assist in the disposal of cigarette butts and other tobacco residue.
The complete policy can be found on the human resources website.
“A committee of faculty and staff representatives worked together to develop a policy that promotes a safe and healthy environment,” said Angela Culler, interim assistant vice president of human resources. “The policy depends on the cooperation of employees, not only to follow the policy, but also to encourage their colleagues who smoke to comply with the policy.”
Smoking cessation classes are offered free of charge through the Professional Development Center. The next classes are scheduled for March 2011. Faculty and staff who register and attend these classes will receive a $400 smoking cessation benefit, which includes a number of prescription products.
Questions related to this policy may be addressed to Human Resources at extension 4700.
