Rebecca Melville

Assistant Director of Accessibility and Disability Resources

Becky joined Accessibility and Disability Resources in January 2021. Before she joined the team at Wellesley, Becky was a Disability Specialist at the University of New Hampshire, an Accommodations Administrator at Harvard University, and, most recently, an Academic Strategies Specialist at Carnegie Mellon University. At her previous institutions, Becky worked closely with students, families, faculty, and other campus stakeholders while facilitating academic, residential, dining, and physical accommodations. These experiences have all served to prepare her for her current role at Wellesley. She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Maine and her master’s degree in student personnel administration in higher education from Springfield College. 

Outside of the office, Becky can usually be found sporting the team gear of her much-loved New England sports teams (Go Pats!), perfecting her homemade nacho recipe, out on a long run, or trying to find the best latte in town. She lives with her husband, four dogs, and enjoys volunteering for organizations that work with rescue dogs.
