Wellesley is proud to claim a long history of engagement with the world.

Our 2,300 students come from more than 50 countries; many of our faculty were trained or currently conduct research abroad; and many of our most prominent programs, from the Albright Institute to the Wellesley Centers for Women, are explicitly global in scope. Our stunning 500-acre campus is located in the suburban town of Wellesley, 12 miles from Boston and Cambridge, one of the world’s great concentrations of intellectual, entrepreneurial, and technological innovation.

For many students, Wellesley is a transformative experience. We appreciate your interest, and we’re excited to learn more about you.
