Wellesley is reimagining how our living and learning spaces can best support our programs and activities in the decades ahead.
As Wellesley College contemplates the future and reimagines how we teach and learn, how we forge new interdisciplinary connections that transcend traditional boundaries, and how we strengthen the bonds between Wellesley and the world, it is imperative that our campus enables our ambitions for the 21st-century liberal arts.
The future of Wellesley depends on the spaces we inhabit.
The plan called "Wellesley 2025" charts a major, multiyear approach to campus renewal. The projects that are part of this exciting initiative will support our academic enterprise, the residential experience, and the College’s wellness and recreational programs. As we prepare for Wellesley’s future, campus renewal will look to refresh Wellesley’s iconic and essential campus buildings, transforming our living and learning environment to meet all the opportunity to come. And it will do so without changing the look and character of our beautiful campus.
Each generation at Wellesley has the great responsibility of stewarding our lovely campus buildings. We have inherited these buildings from those who came before us, and we must take care of our spaces, anticipating future needs, so that they serve Wellesley well into the future.
—H. Kim Bottomly, president of Wellesley College, 2007-2016
