Wellesley Alumnae of African Descent (WAAD)

WAAD (pronounced wade) builds on the rich legacy of the community of women of African descent -- from the trailblazers who came before the founding of Ethos in 1968 to the most recent graduates.

WAAD is one of the first affinity groups incorporated under the umbrella of the Wellesley College Alumnae Association.  We organize with the purpose of strengthening the connections of alumnae of African descent with each other, the College, as well as current and prospective students.  We also hope that WAAD will supplement our connections to our Wellesley alumnae classes and local clubs.
