The Office of Multicultural Affairs strives to foster an inclusive and welcoming campus environment marked by an appreciation of diversity. Toward this end, we work to recruit and retain students of color, and engage members of the University community in meaningful cross cultural interactions. We seek to enhance students' personal, intellectual, and social development through creative and engaging programming. We work to empower global citizens prepared to lead their peers and carry forth the Wake Forest mission of Pro Humanitate.

2014 Building the Dream Award Nomination Form
Each year brings the opportunity to celebrate the life and legacy of one of America's most inspirational individuals, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Unfortunately, some Americans only reflect on Dr. King's accomplishments one day per year. We are honored to acknowledge those whose life builds upon his dream.
Each year representatives from Wake Forest and Winston-Salem State Universities form a joint Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. programming committee. Annually, we award the “Building the Dream” award to one professor or administrator and one student from each respective university. This award will be given to a person who embodies the qualities Dr. King epitomized and actively exercises these qualities in his or her community (on and off campus). The award will be announced at the ceremonial banquet on January 20, 2014 at Winston-Salem State University.
If you know someone who would be a great candidate for the “Building the Dream” award, please complete the brief nomination form by clicking HERE. Nominations are due on Wednesday, December 4, 2013.
Thank you for your participation. We look forward to learning about your nominee!
