Professional Schools

The Kern Family Foundation has awarded Wake Forest University an $8.6 million grant to develop programs that put character at the center of preparing students for work in the professions. This new grant complements and extends the work supported by the Lilly Endowment during recent years by building upon successes in the School of Law, creating major new initiatives in the School of Medicine, enhancing cross-disciplinary offerings, and integrating character into pre-professional programs in the college and professional schools across the university.
