The Wake Forest community mirrors the greater national paradox: We are too “connected” to form real relationships, too busy to fully engage in community and too disillusioned to commit ourselves to organizations led by people who don’t meet our expectations of a leader. Though we don’t like to admit it, this self-imposed isolation leaves us hungry to be part of something bigger – to be in community with others.
For a place like Wake Forest, conversation is at the heart of what we do because it combines ideas and human interaction, the intellectual and the personal. Several Wake Forest alumni and parents have volunteered to host these intimate conversations in various cities across the country. If you would like to be among to the first to be a part of this experience, and help us prioritize locations, please provide your contact information at the bottom of this page.
Wake Will Lead: A Call to Conversation is a national movement with one goal – to spark more meaningful conversations. The immediate impact of the Call to Conversation will be new relationships and a stronger community. Long-term, a culture of conversation will be a recognized signature of the Wake Forest experience.
