Welcome to Wake Forest University School of Divinity. We are a community united by our commitment to justice, reconciliation, and compassion. We believe that the transformative work that begins in the classroom is only as impactful as our pursuit of true justice in the world. Our students, faculty, staff, and alumni are courageously rising to the challenge of today. 

In an age of complexity, now more than ever, our world requires bold and prepared advocates, counselors, teachers, business leaders, nonprofit managers, clergy, and all those willing to stand and act on behalf of humanity. Here, we combine theological education with frameworks for experiential learning through internships, collaborative partnerships, hosting renowned speakers, and opportunities for innovative problem-solving.

The value of our community starts with what we each bring to the table – our whole selves. As we pursue our unique God-inspired paths, we link arm-in-arm to encourage and support each other. Wake Forest University School of Divinity has a long history of welcoming and affirming those who have historically found themselves on the margins.  

As you explore what we offer, we look forward to helping you discern if this is the right place for you. We invite you to explore our website, connect with our staff, and plan a visit
