What is the Alumni Council?

The Wake Forest Alumni Council acts as a link between the University administration and the alumni body of over 70,000. Council members work with the University to support alumni engagement, program development, annual giving campaigns, and student recruitment. The Council is closely aligned with WAKECommunities to engage and reach as many alumni locally as possible. The Council meets twice each year to receive updates on University initiatives and provide feedback from the alumni point-of-view.

Who is on the Alumni Council?

Currently there are 68 members from all across the country, representing a broad range of class years and degrees. Each member serves a four year term.

In addition, there are three committees that work throughout the year on a given area of responsibility:

The Pro Humanitate Committee provides support and advice to the University about ways to advance and recognize Pro Humanitate efforts of Wake Forest alumni across the world.

The Loyal DEAC Committee assists University Advancement’s efforts to expand the number of Loyal DEACS and to grow this popular recognition program.

The Communities Committee supports the local WAKECommunities organizations by serving as a voice for their concerns and issues and promoting events, initiatives, and communication strategies.
