Wake Will supports the core of our educational experience: teacher-scholars whose commitment to their students is rivaled only by their desire to create and share new knowledge. This campaign will work to keep strong leaders on our campus by providing the resources necessary to attract and retain remarkable faculty and build exceptional academic departments. We must seek to recruit and reward those teacher-scholars who most embody the ideas that Wake Forest has for faculty: committed scholars who both teach and mentor students. The mentoring relationships between teachers and students that began in 1834 remain a priority at Wake Forest today. Our personal approach to education is a tradition that will never be outdated.
