Members of the Campus Life Leadership team gathered over lunch in the Autumn Room on Tuesday, December 4, 2018, to discuss Community.

Overview and highlights of our Call to Conversation:

After we all shared our stories, the themes that we shared included a sense of belonging and support, how the experience of the community touched our cores, a deep level of feelings, and a lack of judgment within the community.

  • Finding a community and space where people “get it” and “get you”
  • The importance of spending time and engaging with one another
  • Seeing the level of generosity of others through their stories and narratives
  • In times of crisis, we can experience true community

We concluded with some questions for further reflection:

How can face-to-face conversation and human connection strengthen our positions on campus, as well as the relatability and empathy we have for one another and our students? How will promoting a culture of meaningful dialogue help Wake Forest build an even stronger community?
