Wellesley is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, its gifted faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. But most of all, Wellesley is known for the thousands of accomplished, thoughtful women it has sent out into the world for over 100 years?women who are committed to making a difference. Every year, some 2,400 of the world?s top undergraduate women are ch...allenged to exceed their own highest personal and intellectual expectations. The mastery Wellesley graduates demonstrate across the professional and vocational spectrum, and the influence they wield?whether in their own communities or on the world stage?is testament to a singularly empowering undergraduate experience. Wellesley?s lively academic community places a high value on rigorous, probing inquiry, and creative, cross-discipline thinking. Its collaborative approach to scholarship encourages students to question, debate, and refine their points of view, not only with each other, but with our world-class faculty?often by working directly with them on groundbreaking projects. A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the ?real world? in its graduates, in terms of ability to think, act, and contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest.
