Residential Life Staff

Our mission is to share and model a commitment to the education of students through our roles as administrators, teachers, and mentors.

We are administrators, teachers, and mentors of Wellesley students, and we work with 88 student staff members to bring our philosophy to life and build strong communities within each residence hall.

As administrators, teachers, and mentors we:

  • Foster inclusive learning communities where each member contributes unique history, culture, perspective, talents, and creativity, and where each member appreciates the contributions of other community members.
  • Challenge students to think critically and reflect upon the many aspects of their lives in moving from one stage to another.
  • Model all of the above in our own lives and in our work with each other.
