Today, the Wellesley community and hundreds of distinguished guests come together to celebrate the inauguration of Paula A. Johnson as Wellesley’s 14th president. The theme is “intersections,” because as President Johnson has said, when we connect as individuals and as a community, we discover new insights, create new knowledge, and generate new opportunities.
As this new chapter in Wellesley’s history begins, we celebrate both the rich diversity of our vibrant community and the multi- and interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning that has always been a hallmark of our exceptional educational experience. We also look forward to exciting possibilities as Wellesley continues to prepare women leaders to transform and heal the world.
The ceremony begins at 2:00 PM on Severance Green. Seating for guests opens at 1:00 PM. Inauguration will also be streamed live. Follow along with the program.
