-Academic Initiatives

-Community Engagement

-Equity & Employment

-Evaluations & Accountability

-Student Recruitment, Financial Aid, and Retention

Each committee is composed of 6-8 members. Members of the committees will be Commission members, as well as members of the Wake Forest community not specifically serving on the Commission. There also is room for members of the external community to participate at the committee level, at the discretion of committee chairs. Finally, all 6 committees are charged with the following the 5 principles below, in an effort to connect the individual work, recommendations, and outcomes of the committees.”
