Slater International Student Organization
Welcome to the Slater International Student Organization! Our purpose as an organization is to encourage greater understanding among all cultures through personal association and cooperative endeavors as well as to address the needs and concerns of Wellesley College's international students, and we are constantly working to uphold this through programs and activities structured around current political and historical events and cultural traditions from around the world. The Slater Org is committed to advocating for international students vocally and transparently, and we want to use the platform that we have to really bring awareness to the diversity amongst our community and beyond. We are extremely grateful for the many strong relationships that we have with other Wellesley student organizations, as well as academic departments, and of course, the wonderful Slater Center. We have hosted collaborative events with these groups like the annual Slater Culture Show in the Fall semester and Spring Festival in the Spring semester. The Slater Org’s Executive Board, student officials elected by other students, also works on hosting celebrations of traditional holidays, and events geared towards appreciation of regional food, music, dance, arts and crafts. Many of these elements are prevalent in our programs because we believe that they reflect the cultural diversity of the international campus community and participating in these events allows us to learn from and appreciate the many places Wellesley students call home. The events planned by our organization are open to all members of the Wellesley College community, and we are working on ensuring that students will be able to participate no matter where they are in the world.
We look forward to hearing from students, and we welcome any ideas! Check out our WEngage platform for more information, access to our constitution, ways to leave feedback, and also updates on future events! You can also visit our Instagram or Facebook group.
