Customize your Wake Forest internal directory profile

Modified on: Thu, Sep 28, 2023 4:19 PM

The Wake Forest University internal directory is part of our Google Workspace platform and includes all students, faculty, and staff, so it's a great way for Deacs to find each other and easily chat, email or meet with them on campus or off. Some information in your Wake Forest Google account is managed by our systems of record (Banner/WIN, Workday), but there are many fields that you may customize. Read on to see what you can add, and how. 

 Remember, take care with what you share, and stay kind and professional. Go Deacs!  -Deacbot
