We are pleased to announce the 2013-2014 Alumni Council Innovation Fund winners! The Innovation Fund is designed to support creative club programming that increases alumni participation.
The Innovation Fund Selection Committee has chosen to fund proposals from the alumni clubs in Chicago and Boston.
The Chicago club was awarded funding for Discussions with Deacs: Lessons in Pursuing Your Passions, a series of conversations with notable Chicago Demon Deacons. The speakers will share lessons learned since graduation and offer insight into their career success.
The Boston club was awarded funding for Wake Forest Alumni in Medical Professions, an event that will facilitate focused networking in the healthcare sector, similar to the Wake on Wall Street (WOW) networking group that concentrates on the financial industry.
There were a number of innovative submissions this year, and we look forward to supporting more club programming in the future. If you are interested in receiving feedback with regard to your club’s proposal, please contact Patricia Boone.
The Office of Alumni Engagement’s mission is to find exciting new ways to connect Wake Forest alumni, friends and family. Once a Deac, always a Deac – and we’re here for you. Each day we leap out of bed humming the fight song, ready to create the moments that keep the spirit of Wake Forest present in your world.
