Community Action Network (CAN)
Community Action Network is an open discussion forum to challenge diversity issues on campus including, but not limited to class, sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, and ability. The main focus of this committee is to utilize the student body to create educational programs, educate the campus on diversity issues, and serve as an advocacy group to respond to diversity issues as and before need arises. We improve inclusion on campus through actions like events, projects, and building networks of support between groups on campus. Join us as we make Wellesley better! Email

Each of the members of the Honor Code Council acts as a liaison to their constituency, sits on hearings of honor code violations, and reaches out to the campus to raise prevent cases of academic dishonesty, and encouraging the implementation of the values of the Honor Code in daily life.
