Welcome to the Office of University Collaborations!

The Wake Forest Office of University Collaborations, founded in 2019, is a division of the Office of the Provost focusing institutional resources in service to campus and community needs. We demonstrate our commitment to the University’s motto, Pro Humanitate, by acting as an incubator for students, staff, and faculty to pursue creative collaborations within the campus and the community at large.

MONUMENTAL: Technology, Social Studies, and Shaping Public Memory

This virtual event is intended to (re)introduce community members and educational stakeholders to Kinfolk AR and the Winston-Salem Monuments Project and present a moderated discussion around the issues of monuments and how Black and Brown figures are represented in historical narratives. Educators, students, parents and interested community members will be invited to explore Kinfolk AR’s archive of augmented reality monuments, with a particular focus on monuments dedicated to local historical figures of significance. The creators of Kinfolk AR will provide a demonstration of the app, and offer suggestions for how to use technology as a means to challenge traditional pedagogical practices and expand community discourse on monuments, history, and public memory.
