education; conceiving

nurturing

We
must
work
together
to ensure that

“domestic” experience is rooted in as
global
an education as
possible

all
our

those
inclined
towards
international

after
graduation, a truly
global
experience
during
their

here.
I look

continuing

Dear
Colleagues,
Those
of
us who
have
known WFU in
its varying
incarnations
over
the
decades will recognize that
perhaps
foremost
among
the
recent changes
in our
cherished university
is
its
global
reach. As our
identity
has
shifted from
a
predominantly
regional
liberal-arts institution to
a
national
‘collegiate
university,’
at
once
one
of
a
kind
and
highly
ranked
among
our
kind,
our
scope
is
increasingly
global
as well.
As Kline
Harrison and I will
discuss
with the
trustees
next
month, ‘global
Wake
Forest’
involves three different
aspects.
One involves
our
long
tradition of
students studying
over-
seas: some
two-thirds
of
our
under-
graduates did so
in 2012-13,
a
proportion that
ranks us
second
among
U.S. colleges/universities.
Our
Business, Graduate,
Law,
and
Divinity
Schools are
seeing
more
of
their
students travel
abroad
as well.
Our
Center
for
International
Studies
continues both
to
help facilitate
this
stream
of
outbound
students and
make
sure
the
programs they
engage
in are
aligned with their
WFU
studies.

Another
aspect of
global
Wake
Forest
is our
fast-rising
number
of
students born and raised outside
the
United States.
Among
the
entering
first-year
undergraduate
class of
2012-13,
fully
5% are
international
students—up
from
a
relative
hand-
ful
only
a few years ago.
This shift
presents both wonderful
opportunities for
cross-cultural
exchanges and understanding
as
well
as challenges in terms of fully
supporting
students who
may
be
less
familiar
with U.S. educational
and
social
practices in
their
engagement
with our
community.
Thanks to
the
university-wide
LIAISE Team,
established
this year
to
help provide
such integrative
support.
And
as we
welcome
students from
around the
world, we
also
look
to
bring
in more
International
speakers, conferences,
visiting
faculty,
and
the
like.
Now imagine
a
more
traditional
WFU
student.
Born and raised in the
southeastern U.S.,
after
receiving
a
Wake
Forest
degree
or two
this alum
remains
in the
southeast—in Atlanta,
say,
or
Richmond
or
Winston-Salem.
And
he
or
she
remains
in a regionally
-based profession across
their
career:
working
as a physician or
nurse or
