Area Coordinator of Tower, Claflin, and Casa Cervantes
Meghan Todd joined Residential Life at Wellesley in August 2008 as the resident director of Tower Court. She worked previously in residential life at Iona College and at Sarah Lawrence College, both in New York. Additionally, Meghan worked for the National Organization on Disability, splitting her time between Washington, D.C., and New York City and contributing to disability policy reform and program development, advocating for disability employment equality.
Meghan is originally from upstate New York but spent most of her childhood in Central Florida. It was during her time as an undergraduate at the University of Florida that Meghan discovered her interest in student affairs work as well as her passion for disability rights and advocacy. Since her time at the University of Florida, Meghan has continued to speak publicly and write about topics such as the importance of self advocacy for students with disabilities, disability rights in higher education, and the role of language in reframing society’s understanding of disability. In 2006, Meghan received a master’s degree in women’s history from Sarah Lawrence College, completing a thesis on the feminist and political ideologies of Helen Keller, emphasizing the unwillingness of Keller biographers to address such critical issues. Meghan lives in Tower Court with her partner, Jaime, their young daughter, and their cat, Chicken.
