Center for Community Solutions

Call for Proposals

The Institute for Public Engagement is pleased to announce its call for proposal for the Center for Community Solutions. The Center for Community Solutions is a new enterprise that builds upon the successes of IPE’s Engaged Scholarship Initiative where faculty and community partners collaborate to promote positive social change throughout Winston-Salem.

The Center for Community Solutions aims to rethink traditional academic research in an effort to better serve Winston-Salem; develop greater support for community based projects; and, foster a more cooperative environment and open lines of communication between Wake Forest’s faculty and the Winston-Salem community. Efforts are underway to hold four, Community Partners-WFU Faculty workshops during the upcoming Spring semester. Community-identified topics include: homelessness, educational child readiness, infant health and teen pregnancy.

Click on CCS 2013 Application for the full call. Interested faculty are encouraged to take part in the inaugural cohort during the Spring 2013 semester. The deadline for submitting a proposal for the CC is December 21, 2012. For more information, contact Prof. Sherri Clark clarksl@nullwfu.edu or Steve Virgil virgilsm@nullwfu.edu
