Faculty-Student Engagement

Teaching Learning CenterAs a collegiate university dedicated to the education and mentoring of its students, Wake Forest University promotes and fosters exceptional faculty-student engagement.  The dedicated teacher-scholars on the faculty at Wake Forest take this commitment seriously and thrive on their engagement with students.  The Office of the Provost supports such engagement through three different programs.

Big Campus Connect

The Big Campus Connect is a week-long series of events designed to give even more opportunities for meaningful interaction between faculty-staff and students. Originally proposed by an undergraduate student in 2009, this program is now in it’s fourth year.
