Wake Forest students, faculty, and staff partner with community organizations through ongoing and one-time volunteer projects, service-learning classes, legal & medical clinics, business incubators, internship programs, and community-engaged research and knowledge creation. The Office of Civic & Community Engagement is the hub of community activity at Wake Forest University.
The community partnerships team builds capacity, develops collaborations, and measures impact. We seek to both maintain long-term, historical community relationships and build new partnerships with organizations and emerging projects in the Winston-Salem community.
In 2018 The Office of Civic & Community Engagement led a campus-wide project to map community engagement across the institution.
Each point represents a community partner engaged with an office, program, group, or initiative at Wake Forest. Sites are color-coordinated by interest area.
To address the pertinent need to be physically present in the community, the Office of Civic & Community Engagement maintains a satellite office space located at 915 Bridge Street. With the use of this space, we hope to further facilitate relationships with community members and stakeholders.
Want to meet with our Community Partnership staff? Office hours are held on Tuesdays from 3:00-6:30 PM. You may park in a reserved spot outside of the building or in an adjacent lot.
Do you need to reserve space for a community meeting or event? Please contact Camry Wilborn.
