WFU - Multicultural Affairs



The Office of Multicultural Affairs strives to enhance the experience of students from underrepresented groups and foster an appreciation of diversity and inclusion. We collaborate to recruit and engage students through educational, social and co-curricular programming. We emphasize identity, intersectionality and relationship-building to promote intercultural understanding. Our cultural competence education initiatives empower students for global leadership and equip students to carry forth the Wake Forest mission of Pro Humanitate.
