Planning
ahead for spring

another institution, including Wake Forest University Health Sciences, that will lead to extramural funding for both institutions. Up to $20,000
will be awarded for each project. The next deadline for the CPG program is Friday, March 4, 2016.
NEWS TEAM LAUNCHES BROADCAST TV STUDIO
Faculty
experts and campus newsmakers
who work with the office of News and
Communications soon will have a new
resource available to them when it
comes to broadcast interviews.
Beginning
in mid-October, the news
office will operate a fully-equipped, pro-
fessional television studio that is capable
of transmitting broadcast-quality HD vid-
eo to broadcast news media organizations around the world. Now when media seek
commentary on timely or breaking news topics, the news team can help faculty share
their expertise for live and pre-recorded interviews in high-definition with the latest
technology right here on campus.
The
studio is conveniently located in Z. Smith Reynolds Library, behind The Bridge. The
studio was made possible as part of a generous donation from the Clark Family Foun-
dation, as part of Wake Will: The Campaign for Wake Forest.

This week during TurkeyPalooza, Campus Kitchen vol-
unteers and Wake Forest students scratch cooked
over 400 meals to feed Thanksgiving meals to their
partner organizations. The organization prepared eve-
rything from turkey and healthy stuffing with cranber-
ry sauce to pumpkin cookies, and more. TurkeyPaloo-
za relies entirely on food and monetary donations to
be able to scratch cook the meals to serve in the Tri-
ad. TurkeyPalooza, which takes place during National
Hunger and Homelessness week, is an annual Campus
Kitchen tradition at Wake Forest and Campus Kitch-
en's biggest event each year.
Funding for Faculty-Student Curricular and Co-curricular Collaboration in Spring 2016!
As you plan and prepare for the spring term, keep in mind that several Humanities Institute
programs are designed, in full or in part, to support various forms of faculty-student collabo-
ration that our faculty enjoy doing with either entire classes, individual students, or small
groups of students in curricular and co-curricular contexts. Check out Humanities Matters,
Winston-Salem Partners in the Humanities, Faculty-Student Reading Groups in the Humani-
ties, Faculty-Student Collaborative Humanities Research, and Innovations in Digital Humani-
ties. Spring 2016 funding is still available and proposal forms are online under "Forms."
