students exploring a conference

The Wellesley educational experience is—at its heart—a truly global one.

Students, faculty, administrators, and alumnae celebrate the intellectual liveliness of our community and the cosmopolitanism of our campus.

  • The important and timely conference held in Rabat, Morocco, last year on “Women Leading Change in the Arab and Muslim World,” organized by the Wellesley Centers for Women.
  • A symposium on “Women in Leadership” held in London in December by our Albright Institute, in partnership with the London School of Economics.
  • Thought-provoking exhibits at the Davis Museum on the Ghanaian artist El Anatsui and the American artist Radcliffe Bailey that take a hard look at Africa and the phenomenon of globalization from both sides of the Atlantic.
  • The Distinguished Writers Series, organized by the Newhouse Center for the Humanities, which sponsors public readings on campus by prominent writers. Over the years authors have come from Belarus, Slovenia, India, Ireland, the West Indies, Nigeria, Cuba, Guatemala, China, and Japan, sparking conversations not just about literature but about the world it reflects and our place in it.
