Request a Consultation

The CAT welcomes conversations about teaching and learning with anyone in our Wake Forest community. All members of our team can consult on any of the issues below, but we are better able to distribute our work and build expertise by specializing. You are welcome to schedule a consultation with any of us, but we ask that you begin with the CAT Team member who leads our programming in your area of interest. If one of us has limited availability, and you don’t have a strong preference for working with specific members of our team, you can also use the “First Available” scheduling tool below to schedule a meeting with whoever has the earliest availability.

First Available

Does your question not fit in any of the above categories? Or does it seem to bridge them all? Are you having a hard time scheduling a timely meeting with the team lead in your area of interest? If so, use the link below to see all of our calendars and schedule an appointment with the first of us who is available.
