Welcome to the Wake Forest University Policy Library!

Wake Forest’s policies connect the University’s mission to the everyday actions of its community, clarify the institution’s expectations of its individual members, mitigate institutional risk, enhance efficiency, and support the university’s compliance with laws and regulations.

Documents contained in the library are secured and available to University faculty, staff and students.  You must be logged into your WFU Google account in order to access these documents.

A short two minute video tutorial is available to show you how to make the most out of this website. If you have any questions about the Policy Library, please email policies@gg.wfu.edu for assistance.
