About Wake Forest University

Wake Forest College, as it was then known, was formed in 1834 with a unique educational mission — to build not only intellect, but also character. Today, Wake Forest University carries on this mission by educating the whole person through mind, body and spirit and by helping students find their place in the world following graduation.

The university motto is Pro Humanitate, which means to serve humanity. This motto is interwoven throughout the academic programs and curriculum at Wake Forest and is heeded by the faculty and student body.
