Kenneth (Ken) A. Zick came to Wake Forest University from the University of Michigan where he was a Michigan Scholar in College Teaching, having earned his B.A. (1971), Phi Beta Kappa, from Albion College, his Juris Doctor (1975) from Wayne State and the M.L.S. (1989) from the University of Michigan. Ken taught for thirteen years in the law school where he also established its Clinical Education Program, directed the Legal Research and Writing Program, coached over twenty championship moot court teams, and as Academic Dean led the curricular improvements associated with the law school's strategic plan. In 1988 President Hearn appointed him Vice President of Student Life and Instructional Resources. During his tenure he has led the consolidation of student services programs, the establishment of the Volunteer Service Corp., and initiated several programs in student leadership development, including the first ACC Student Leaders Conference. Zick retired from the Student Life position in 2013. He has continued to teach in several areas-law, history, and communications. This oral history interview includes Zick describing his arrival at Wake Forest and early days of teaching, and the generational changes within the Law School faculty. He also shares his experiences developing Law School programming, serving as Vice President for Student Life, and working with President Hearn.
