“I am convinced that Wake Forest can claim a very special — even extraordinary — place in American higher education.  I have learned in my time here that Wake Forest is a deeply personal place, dedicated to community and face-to-face interaction. We help students connect who they are with what they do, helping them to find meaning and purpose in their lives and work.”

-Wake Forest University President, Dr. Nathan Hatch
