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.
The Mix Up
Tuesdays and Wednesdays in April
11:30am - 1:30pm
Fresh Food Company (aka "The Pit")
Come Mix It Up With Us!
The Mix Up is a new initiative of the Office of Multicultural Affairs. The program is based on National Mix It Up at Lunch Day—a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance programs and the Study Circles Resource Center—that supports student efforts to identify, question, and cross social boundaries within their schools and communities. The goal of the program is to help our students take a fresh look at our campus environment and ask why the barriers that divide groups exist. Faculty, staff and student facilitators will challenge students to engage other Wake Forest students who may identify differently by having a conversation over lunch.

ATTENTION WFU FACULTY
A goal of the Office of Multicultural Affairs is to support faculty members in engaging underrepresented minorities and other students in the classroom. To this end, we are collaborating with the Teaching and Learning Center to sponsor the following workshop series for Wake Forest faculty to learn about various demographic groups represented among the incoming freshman class. The presenters will share information on these students' unique needs, and we will explore pedagogical approaches that lead to student success.
