Purpose: Advise the City Council regarding matters that are of interest to students who are enrolled in colleges and universities in Winston-Salem, which, in turn, will encourage the retention of college graduates in Winston-Salem.
New Mediation Program!
The College Advisory Board/Wake Forest University School of Law Mediation Program has been launched. The College Advisory Board initiated this program and partnered with the Wake Forest University School of Law for its implementation.
The CAB/WFU School of Law Mediation Program is for community mediation between residents of the community immediately surrounding Wake Forest University and off-campus Wake Forest students who may be experiencing disagreements with noise issues, trash issues, parking, and other neighbor vs. neighbor issues. Volunteer law students from the Wake Forest School of Law will mediate for students and/or residents for free.
For additional information or for a mediation request, please call City Link 311.
