Report Released

20140318police4852In the spring of 2014, the Wake Forest community expressed concerns about the perception of racial bias. Wake Forest enlisted the assistance of Developmental Associates, a leading public safety, government and education consulting firm based in North Carolina. Taking the lead in an independent and objective review of those concerns were investigators Willie Williams and Thomas Moss. Following their thorough investigation, Williams and Moss prepared a report intended to serve our entire community and our united efforts to move forward toward an inclusive environment for all.
The following link leads to a summary of the report, which includes relevant data recommendations that are leading to numerous action steps. Some steps have already been taken, and more are beginning promptly.
In brief, a new online tool to report incidents of bias is being launched immediately, all police personnel received additional training, and new opportunities for students to meet directly with police officers commence this semester. Details on many more action steps are outlined in the report. Click Here for Report
