A message from Provost Rogan Kersh

This to affirm that Suzanne Reynolds (JD ’77) has graciously accepted my request to serve as Interim Dean for the coming academic year.  Ron Wright, similarly graciously, has agreed to replace Suzanne for the year as Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

President Hatch and I wish Dean Morant well as he transitions to his new position in Washington.  We have great confidence in our Law leadership team, under the experienced guidance of Suzanne, and look forward to working with the team–and, indeed, with all of you–to successfully navigate the shifting winds of legal education.

As President Hatch indicated in his university-wide note last week, we will launch a national search for Dean Morant’s successor, beginning this September.  My grateful thanks in advance to each of you for your support of this vital endeavor.  And a special note of appreciation to Suzanne and Ron for their willingness to take on these essential interim roles: your support will be all the more valued as we steer a forward course together.

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.

Last May, I sent you an email sharing my intent to implement a University-wide Strategic Resource Initiative. Provost Rogan Kersh and Senior Vice President for Administration and Finance Hof Milam will lead a steering committee charged with assessing opportunities to capture funds through greater efficiency, collaboration and practical solutions. The ultimate goal of the committee is to identify funds that will allow us to continue progress on our most important strategic priorities, including student financial aid and competitive compensation for faculty and staff.

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
