We want adult learners across our community and beyond to be aware of Wake Forest’s online resources for learning and life, supplementing what we offer through in-person classes in Liberal Arts Studies and Lifelong Learning. Especially during this time of physical distancing, our online connections are important to our well-being. To help with this effort, we have provided a variety of opportunities that are available to you through Wake Forest.
The Continuing Studies Office does not have detailed information on everything you will find on these campus resource pages, so we encourage you to reach out to that office or department for details.
Helping Ourselves and Others
In a time of global crisis, we need to take care of our own well-being, and do whatever we can to help others — in our families, organizations, and communities.
