The Wellesley Effect

A Wellesley education has a tangible, lasting effect on women and, therefore, the world. This phenomenon is known as the Wellesley Effect. Wellesley College President H. Kim Bottomly recently announced the launch of a $500 million campaign designed to celebrate, strengthen and advance the Wellesley Effect. Find a direct link to the video here. Additionally, this is the link to the main campaign page: The Wellesley Effect.


The campaign will focus on four priorities: Intellectual Community; Affordability and Access; A Sense of Place; and 21st Century Impact. Each of these priorities contributes to a specific, important aspect of the Wellesley experience.
