Consolidated University Policy Library launch

A new consolidated University Policy Library website (policy.wfu.edu) has been launched to make Wake Forest administrative policies more accessible to the campus community. All administrative policies and supporting documents from departments within Finance & Administration – which includes Budget & Financial Planning, Environmental Health & Safety, Facilities & Campus Services, Financial Services, Hospitality & Auxiliary Services, Human Resources and Information Systems – can be viewed on this website, as well as on each corresponding departmental webpage.

These administrative policies provide guidance for the everyday activities of the campus community, clarify the University’s expectations of its individual members, reduce institutional risk, increase efficiency and support the University’s compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations.

Filters are available to refine your search and if you are unsure of the document name, use the A – Z Index feature to view based on keywords.

Additional policy content will be added over time.

Mur Muchane named Assoc. VP for Information Technology & CIO

Mur.Muchane.300x175Wake Forest has named Mur Muchane Associate Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer (CIO). He will assume his duties in January.

Muchane, who currently serves as CIO and Executive Director of Information Technology (IT) Services at Davidson College in Davidson, N.C., is known for his creative leadership in exploring opportunities for managing campus needs through advances in technology.

In addition to improving transparency, service levels and responsiveness in IT Services, Muchane re-shaped the IT landscape at Davidson and expanded the sense of what to expect from this field. He led the effort to upgrade the campus to a fiber optic network, providing the capacity and performance necessary to meet Davidson’s rapidly growing needs of voice, video, data, high-end research and collaboration. He also helped forge Davidson’s partnership with edX — joining universities such as Harvard, University of Chicago, MIT and Georgetown — to produce a series of online courses and high school Advanced Placement online modules.
