Wake Forest is committed to strengthening our excellent academic programming by creating new opportunities for academic collaboration and support. Beginning in 2007, five centers and two institutes have helped our distinguished faculty increase their total number of research proposals and external funding grants. Our teacher-scholars received more than 14 million dollars in awards during the 2009-2010 academic year.
Increased access to mentoring and advising resources was also made a top priority, prompting the launch of the Undergraduate Research Center, the Office of Academic Advising and the Mentoring Resource Center in 2008, 2009, and 2010, respectively. These three new resources support hundreds of undergraduate students and foster rewarding engagement between student and faculty research pairs.
The successful Wake Forest Fellows Program, which provides recent Wake Forest graduates the opportunity to work with senior administrators and receive career development mentoring, has grown from four Fellows in 2008 to 14 Fellows in 2010.
To leverage the strengths of our robust undergraduate and graduate business schools, Calloway and Babcock, the schools merged in 2009. The completion of the new Schools of Business Building, Farrell Hall in 2013, will complete the physical integration.
