2018 Founders' Day Convocation

Each year, the Wake Forest family gathers for the Founders' Day Convocation to observe the University's founding in February of 1834. Wake Forest will hold Founders' Day Convocation on Thursday, February 15, at 4:00 p.m. in Wait Chapel. We will award the Medallion of Merit and faculty awards will be presented in the areas of advising, teaching, and service. As is Wake Forest tradition, we will also have the opportunity to hear outstanding seniors read this year's winning Senior Orations and the Class of 2018 will be honored with a  "senior video".

Information for faculty, including processing information and regalia inquiries, can be found at

The Office of the Provost will be hosting a reception immediately following the convocation in the Green Room of Reynolda Hall.
