School of Divinity

Where personal faith becomes a decision to lead
Wake Forest School of Divinity will prepare men and women to be leaders who bring religious perspectives to the most pressing questions of our day so they might be agents of justice, reconciliation and compassion in churches and communities.
  • This support of ministry preparation ensures that our students will be effective leaders for the churches of today and tomorrow.

  • As we seek to increase the size of our student body, we will rely on scholarship assistance to welcome students of all financial backgrounds to the School of Divinity.

  • Investing in teacher-scholars will increase outstanding classroom teaching, student mentoring, creative and engaged scholarship and commitment to community life.

  • Our annual fund is essential to the operation of the School of Divinity, and it helps to support student financial aid directly.
