Multicultural Spaces at Wellesley

Earlier today, Provost Andy Shennan, Interim Dean of Students Adele Wolfson, and I announced plans to enhance existing multicultural space and create a network of multicultural spaces at Wellesley.

Since the beginning of the semester, we have been working to address the shortage of space—concerns that have long been raised by students as well as by the President’s Commission on Ethnicity, Race, and Equity (CERE), a committee composed of faculty, staff, and students that I created last January.

As you can read in the announcement, our vision for multicultural spaces was framed by principles that reflect our institutional commitment to diversity and inclusion. I very much look forward to working with students and members of this community on this new endeavor.

This plan is a part of our ongoing effort to make Wellesley a more equitable place. I am grateful to the many members of our community, including CERE and other campus groups, who are actively engaged in this work.
