Wake Forest University is partnering along with Guilford College and High Point University to create a consortium in North Carolina within the Campus Consortium – where three institutions of higher education jointly participate in year-long programming. Each will also have at least one student selected for an international reporting fellowship.

Wake Forest University is a collegiate university that balances the personal attention of a liberal arts college with the academic vitality and broad opportunities of a research university. The teacher-scholar ideal is at Wake Forest's heart. In small classrooms and cutting-edge research labs, professors practice their art with keen interest in students and their lives.

Among its component parts, the School of Divinity is distinguished by its interdisciplinary approach and is one of only five divinity schools in the country with no formal denominational affiliation. Its School of Medicine is among the top 32 schools in the country in research funding awarded by the National Institutes of Health. The Journalism Program is housed within the Department of English and has two overlapping missions. The first is to provide professional training in journalism to aspiring professional journalists. The second is to familiarize liberal arts students of varying majors and goals with the way journalism works.
