Faculty and Staff
A liberal arts education provides the best possible foundation for students as they build a life and career that is both intellectually stimulating and personally meaningful. At Wellesley, students in every academic discipline engage in scholarly research, rigorous debate, critical thinking and constant interrogation of both self and society. This extends beyond the classroom to the residential experience, student leadership, campus employment and extracurricular engagement.
Career education at Wellesley supports students as they explore, experience, apply and pursue their academic interests in the wider world.
