The Office of Intercultural Education

The Office of Intercultural Education supports Wellesley College’s commitment to educating students for national and global citizenship by implementing an integrated co-curricular program of intercultural education that equips students with the knowledge and skills they will need for leadership and life in a diverse and interdependent world. The Intercultural Education Team has responsibility for the development and leadership of intercultural education activities, trainings and programs that educate and promote awareness, understanding and appreciation of diversity and inclusion on campus and increasing multicultural competency throughout the campus community. In addition Intercultural Education Team members serve as advisors to particular student cultural communities, mentor students, and support clubs and students on issues related to academic achievement, student development, leadership, conflict resolution, community building and collaboration with other students and student groups on campus. The work of the Office of Intercultural Education is centered on four Strategic Directions developed by the Core Committee and focused on the themes of and diversity and inclusion, affirmation and collaboration, student success, and leadership development.
