Diversity and inclusion can serve as catalysts for academic excellence and both are central to the mission of the University. The LGBTQ Center provides support, advocacy and outreach, but it goes beyond the LGBTQ community. It’s about creating the opportunity for everyone to engage in the Wake Forest community to their fullest potential.
Wake Forest students are going to go out and do great things, be doctors, lawyers, teachers, presidents of multinational corporations, and one thing they will need in this changing world is to have a high level of cultural competency. By giving students the tools to be culturally competent citizens of the world, we help them to fulfill the University’s mission of serving humanity.
