SCUP 2015 North Atlantic Symposium:
Leadership, Legacy and Looking Forward at Wellesley College
October 9, 2015 | Wellesley, MA
“Smart, serious women choose Wellesley because it offers one of the best liberal arts educations – and total learning environments – available anywhere. But they graduate with more than a highly regarded degree and four memorable years. They leave as “Wellesley women,” uniquely prepared to make meaningful personal and professional contributions to the “real world” – and to be major influences in it.”
In this one-day symposium, we will explore the heritage, culture and curriculum, values and goals, stewardship and renewal, and landscape and structures that define and distinguish Wellesley College, the world’s preeminent women’s liberal arts institution.
Explore the college’s core beliefs – making a difference, disciplined thinking, valuing diversity, pragmatic leadership, and service – and how they affect planning, curriculum, student life, and resources.
Discuss how women’s colleges plan for admissions, financial viability, alumnae allegiance and support, and continued relevance into the future.
Review a comprehensive planning process aimed at reinvigorating Wellesley’s iconic and essential campus buildings in support of the academic enterprise, the residential experience, and the recreational programs at Wellesley.
See how one of the country’s most beautiful campuses stewards its historic landscape; hear lessons learned from a major environmental reclamation that enhanced a sensitive watershed eco-system.
