Take advantage of our resources

We are assembling a collection of resources aimed at building and maintaining connections between the Frost Center and all of the members of our community. We hope to establish a strong foundation of inclusion at the Center, and have been working with the Office of Intercultural Education to create an environmental antiracism working group with students from the Frost Center, Botanic Gardens, and the Paulson Initiative. 

Through social media and our weekly newsletter, we hope people will stay connected to environmentally-themed events, academic programming, and employment resources at the College. We are also developing initiatives aimed at building relationships bewteen current students and alumnae, including a mentoring program that will pair students with alums from similar backgrounds and in a wide variety of fields of interest.

Students for Intersectional Environmental Justice

The Frost Center for the Environment is host to Students for Intersectional Environmental Justice (SIEJ). The group consists of student representatives from the Frost Center, the Environmental Studies Department, the Botanic Gardens, the Paulson Initiative, and the Office of Sustainability. The group provides paid opportunities for students to work together, along with guidance from faculty/staff, to plan and implement changes in their respective departments/programs that will promote a commitment to intersectional environmental justice. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Studies, Ashanti Shih, is currently serving as faculty mentor to SIEJ.

Environmental Alumnae Network

The Frost Center for the Environment and the Environmental Studies department have collaborated to develop a mentoring program that connects alumnae and current students who have relevant interests, backgrounds or professional goals. This program compliments the Hive (the existing Wellesley Alum platform) but is accessible and specific to students with environmental interests and can connect them to alums with a wide range of experiences that differ from the ES faculty. Mentors and mentees meet remotely at least twice a year and mentors are available as a sounding board for mentees on an as needed / as available basis. As students come to us asking for mentors, we'll be pairing them with alumnae individually or in small groups ("pods") based on their interests. We are hoping to include mentors with a wide range of backgrounds, including people who've graduated recently and those who are established in their careers. If you are interested in participating in this program as a mentor or mentee, please reach out to frostcenter@wellesley.edu
