Community happens in partnership.

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.

Each point represents a community partner engaged with an office, program, group, or initiative at Wake Forest. Sites are color-coordinated by interest area.
