Wellesley in the World

Wellesley alumnae are making a difference around the world.

The College’s global focus and its multi-dimensional approach to the liberal arts create a rich soil in which leaders can grow. Our students come from 83 countries and represent a myriad of different races, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. By offering the broadest possible curriculum and by encouraging interdisciplinary thinking and study abroad with financial support when needed, Wellesley produces women who are extraordinarily well-equipped for an interconnected, interdependent age. Wellesley women graduate ready to contribute in every arena.

But that is not all we do.

Our goal of building the skills and elevating the aspirations of our own students is where we start; our longer-term objective is to extend opportunities for advancement to women and girls everywhere. As the world leader in educating women, Wellesley is in a unique position to lead in advancing the cause of women around the world. Our campus institutions—from the Madeleine K. Albright Institute for Global Affairs to the Davis Museum and the Wellesley Centers for Women—all take a worldwide perspective, while their work and status have worldwide impact.
