Wellesley’s senior leadership shares a common goal: providing the richest educational experience for women available in any undergraduate institution anywhere.
H. Kim Bottomly, President of the College
"Leadership ability is enhanced by an understanding of a broad range of disciplines and the ability to hear and to synthesize distinct and diverse points of view. At Wellesley, we cultivate young women's inherent leadership skills through our approach to the liberal arts, and prepare them for the important role they will have in shaping our future."
Andrew Shennan, Provost and Dean of the College
"The mission and educational philosophy of Wellesley College are inextricably linked: to provide a vibrant, intellectually challenging education to women intent on serving their community and influencing their world."
Debra DeMeis, Dean of Students
"Wellesley isn't just a leading liberal arts college; it's a totally engaging—and engaged—learning environment, built on and around the talents, energy and dedication of the student community."
Jennifer Desjarlais, Dean of Admission and Financial Aid
"Wellesley looks for a very special kind of student: someone who has a hunger for learning, is interested in many points of view, and who knows that she wants to leave the college with a strong sense of self, well focused, and with the skills—and determination—to make a difference in her world."
Ben Hammond, Vice President for Finance and Administration
"Wellesley’s mission of providing an excellent liberal arts education for women who will make a difference in the world is more vital than ever."
Cameran Mason, Vice President of Resources and Public Affairs
"We are as focused on leadership as our students. Like our graduates, we want to be at the forefront in finding new solutions to old problems, integrating distinct and diverse viewpoints, and using creative and thoughtful approaches to all we do."
