The 40 for 40 campaign aims to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Intercultural Center (formerly the Office of Multicultural and Minority Affairs) on Wake Forest’s campus. Throughout the past 40 years, the Intercultural Center has served as a home away from home and space for community building amongst students, faculty and staff of color. Through our programming (intercultural, educational & social); our student support and engagement, as well as our identity development initiatives; we have worked to make Wake Forest a more inclusive environment for all Demon Deacons.
The money from the 40 for 40 campaign will directly assist students with the experiential learning offered during their undergraduate experience.
Over the past 10 years, the University has seen over a 15% increase in experiential learning (Study Abroad, Service Learning and Wake Alternative Break trips) amongst students of color. Currently, the IC financially supports students in these endeavours through an assistance fund, but would love to increase the amount of student financial support to work towards a more Global Wake Forest.
