Planning ahead for spring
The Collaborative Pilot Grants (CPG) program aims to stimulate research
projects between Wake Forest University Reynolda Campus faculty and
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 3, 2017.
Nominations due Friday, November 25
To honor faculty members who have distinguished themselves as excel-
lent mentors of Wake Forest undergraduate scholars, the URECA Center
has established a faculty Award for Excellence in Mentorship in Research
and Creative Work. The award recognizes those faculty who share their
passion for scholarship and creative activities, and who encourage and
inspire their students to work closely with them.
We invite faculty, alums, and students to nominate any faculty member
who served or continues to serve as mentors for undergraduate scholar-
ly work. Nominations are accepted in the Fall semester, and the awards
are presented at Founders' Day Convocation. Please read the guide-
lines here and send your nominations to Tammy Griffin, via email
(burketj@wfu.edu) or hand-deliver them to 104 Reynolda Hall. Nomina-
tions are due by Friday, November 25.

Workday Update
The implementation of Workday, the enterprise-level software solu-
tion for Human Resources Management, Financial Management,
and Budget and Planning, is underway. The Workday Steering Com-
mittee is establishing the leadership and governance of the Workday
project as well as coordinating preparations for implementation.
Sierra Cedar, the most experienced Workday implementation firm in
higher education, has been selected as our implementation partner.
In addition, a three person project management office, comprised of
a project director, the Sierra Cedar project manager and a Wake
Forest project manager, will direct and manage the effort.
The formal project kickoff meeting for the implementation to Work-
day was held on Wednesday, November 9. Significant work has
already been accomplished in preparation for the first Workday
prototype to be delivered to Wake Forest in early to mid-December.
