As part of fulfilling its mission and achieving its goals, Wake Forest University seeks to encourage students, faculty, administrators, and staff to “explore the spiritual dimensions to human existence in ways that prompt examination of self and perceptions of the world.”

The religious and spiritual components of the University’s programming are intended to encourage the pursuit of meaning through spiritual reflection and free inquiry, enabling a wide circle of inclusion and identifications, advancing mutual understanding and respect among differing traditions, while at the same time fostering Wake Forest’s Baptist history and traditions in real and tangible ways.
