Strategic Resource Initiative committee members named

Dear Wake Forest Community,

I hope your semester is off to a productive start. At the end of August, I was pleased to welcome the class of 2016 to campus, 79 percent of which graduated in the top 10 percent of their high school class. Wake Forest continues to attract top-caliber students because we continue to provide an exceptional education. Our ability to meet and exceed our students’ expectations depends on our stewardship of University resources and our ability to pursue new and innovative ways to fulfill the University’s mission.

I am grateful to the faculty members, deans and administrators on the Strategic Resource Initiative Steering Committee for volunteering the time and considerable energy it will take to meet our goals. To be successful it will be important that we all respect the confidential nature of the deliberations to take place. The following people have agreed to serve on the steering committee: Read more
