As part of the Strategic Plan and its emphasis on the importance of mentoring, the Wake Forest Fellows Program was created to provide recent graduates a chance to work in higher administration in a year-long position as full-time staff members of the university. Established by the President's Office in 2008, the program
provides a variety of challenging work opportunities in Student Life, Information Systems, Sustainability, the Humanities Institute, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, the START Gallery and the Offices of the Dean, President, Provost, and Personal and Career Development.
President's Aides are student leaders who serve as representatives of Wake Forest University and the student body, and participate in a variety of University events throughout the academic year. In addition, President's Aides meet regularly with President Nathan O. Hatch,
providing an additional communication link between students and the administration. President's Aides are students who have demonstrated leadership in academic life, student life and community service.
