AS PART OF the Strategic Plan and its emphasis on the importance of mentoring, the Wake Forest Fellows Program was created to provide recent graduates a chance to work in higher administration in a year-long position as full-time staff members of the University. Established by the President’s Office in 2008, the program provides challenging work opportunities in a variety of offices across campus.

In addition to a year-long assignment in a particular department of the university, each Fellow has opportunities to interact with key administrators and faculty; to learn about various administrative areas of the university; and to participate in a series of leadership lunches and enrichment activities with leaders in the Wake Forest and larger Winston-Salem community.
