Wake The Arts

In difficult times, we gravitate to the Arts, yearning for depth, expression, and inspiration. This semester is going to challenge all of us in new and unexpected ways. We embrace this challenge and celebrate the creative group of faculty, students and staff working to plan programming and events that ensure this semester embodies the Wake Forest that we all love.

The fall semester will be different than anything we have experienced, and we will depend on a mindset rooted in our motto of Pro Humanitate — for humanity. As we enter this semester, we call upon our community to Show Humanitate and demonstrate the responsibility of each of us for the wellbeing of all of us–a call to action in a spirit of unity and with a sense of optimism for the semester ahead.

Together, let’s show the world the meaning of Pro Humanitate.


Wake The Arts

Wake the Arts is a movement to infuse the arts into every aspect of the Wake Forest experience. Through this shared connection we will elevate Pro Humanitate to develop Wake Forest graduates who are empathetic, curious, and interdisciplinary problem solvers. We believe that all knowledge becomes more impactful when combined with the power of expression.

No matter what field of study one chooses at Wake Forest, it will be enhanced through a culture of creativity that nurtures and celebrates our shared community.
