Pro Humanitate

At Wake Forest, the ideal of ethical community engagement is part of a rich campus life. We foster productive collaboration with local, national and global communities in the business, social and charitable realms. Not only does community engagement carry forth Wake Forest’s commitment to public service, embodied in the motto Pro Humanitate (“For Humanity”), it also strengthens the University’s bonds with entrepreneurial communities, seeding new opportunities for the future.
