As colleagues and students begin returning to Wake Forest campuses this week, it is important to remember that the responsibility to protect the health and wellbeing of our community rests with each of us. We hope that this video about the student social compact inspires you to accept this challenge and to abide by the safety measures set by the university.

Navigating this semester will require flexibility as we all continue to respond to ever-evolving circumstances. The HR team is committed to providing our colleagues with timely email updates – such as this one – and additional COVID-related forums to ensure our faculty and staff have the information they need.

We continue to be buoyed by the kindness, collaboration, creativity, and dedication of campus colleagues as we enter a semester unlike any before.
