As seen in +USA TODAY College#WFU faculty adapt technology in a new way to help blind student, Kathryn Webster ('17), see math clearly.  
Wake Forest faculty and staff hunt down a novel suite of technologies that help a blind student pursue her dreams of becoming an actuary.

Just this summer I was pondering the unique challenges writing and reading math present to the blind. Kudos to  Kathryn Webster for showing the way.

I believe that value for character is exactly what Martin Luther King Jr predicted in his "I Have a Dream" speech.

Wake Forest students, faculty and staff are working together to advance equity and inclusion: http://bit.ly/1vTHQhI
More than 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at Wake Forest, universities across the country are making headlines related to race and identity. At a time when Wake Forest has a more diverse study body than ever, the campus community is addressing these challenges together.

Tagline
Wake Forest claims the distinction of being the nation's premier collegiate university.
Introduction
Wake Forest offers the personal attention of a small liberal arts college coupled with the breadth and depth of a large research institution. This duality extends to our faculty ideal of professors who are both teachers and scholars, resulting in meaningful research opportunities for students and classroom experiences with professors who are relevant in their fields.

With fewer than 12 students per professor, our students benefit from engagement with outstanding teachers every day, inside and outside the classroom.
