Women World Partners Launches June 2013 in Beijing

Wellesley's new initiative takes the College around the globe in partnership with the world's leading institutions. Its mission: to share the unique interdisciplinary pedagogy developed for Wellesley's Madeleine K. Albright Institute for Global Affairs to help create the next generation of women leaders.

The Inaugural Partnership: Wellesley College & Peking University

The Wellesley College & Peking University Partnership will kick off on June 5, 2013. Twenty students will travel from Wellesley to Beijing to participate in an intensive 10-day academic program with 20 Peking University students. The program will be based upon the Albright Institute's educational model and supported by faculty from both institutions.

On June 15, the academic program will culminate in a first-of-its-kind conference on women's leadership featuring distinguished women leaders from China, the United States, and all around the globe.
