“We came to Washington, D.C. because we know it is a place our students and alumni want to be. It is here – where people have the opportunity to be in the center of our nation’s activity, where there is room to make a difference – it is here we want to be. It is here Wake Foresters need to be. It is here we are pleased to be.”
Thoughts from Wake Forest Leaders
Why We’re Here
The vision of Wake Forest in Washington is to raise the profile and tangible presence of Wake Forest University in Washington, D.C. and have a discernible role in the national conversations on the policies, laws and central issues facing this country and our world.
Our presence here starts with academic programs and is fortified by more than 9,000 Wake Forest alumni, parents and friends who live and work in the Washington area, many of whom have established themselves as leaders in the community. By building a bridge between our nation’s capital and our campus in Winston-Salem, we are able to forge a pathway for students and alumni to live out Pro Humanitate on the national and global stage.
