Educating self-reflective leaders: faculty receive grant for learner-centered teaching: As a graduate school that is part of a university that values faculty as
teacher-scholars, the School of Divinity continues to strengthen its commitment to effective teaching and meaningful student learning. Implementing learner-
centered approaches to teaching helps to overcome passive habits of learning by encouraging students to own their role as agents of their learning and for-
mation. As faculty engage in the ongoing work of becoming more effective teachers, students develop skills of collaboration and accountability, enabling them
to become self-reflective religious leaders in a variety of ministerial contexts. Read more: http://wakediv.school/2dLxQnq
Sharing the power of prophetic voice through word, art, and music: From Nov. 7-10 Wake Forest University School of Divinity hosted the Festival Week of Pro-
phetic Ministry. The festival was designed to deepen student reflection on prophetic ministry and provide a platform for them to exercise their own voices
through preaching, music, and visual art to consider, experience, and experiment with the practice of social witness and protest arts. Read more about the
festival's impact on the community: http://wakediv.school/2f50HXv
Episcopal Bishop Porter Taylor to join faculty as Visiting Professor: The Rt. Rev. G. Porter Taylor, who served as the sixth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of
Western North Carolina for over a decade, has been appointed Visiting Professor of Episcopal Studies at Wake Forest University’s School of Divinity. He retired
as Diocesan Bishop of the conference in September and will join the faculty in the fall of 2017. “When I visited campus and spoke in community worship earlier
this year, I was excited about and impressed with the diversity that exists in the student body and their range of interests," Taylor said. He is eager to get started
in building something new at the school as he guides Master of Divinity students in exploring how they might fulfill their vocation as Episcopalians and ordained
clergy, and aids the university and local communities in learning more about Episcopal identity. An official announcement will be available soon at http://
