Wellesley is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, its gifted faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. But most of all, Wellesley is known for the thousands of accomplished, thoughtful women it has sent out into the world for over 100 years—women who are committed to making a difference. A Transformative Educational Experience Every year, some 2,400 of the world’s top undergraduate women are challenged to exceed their own highest personal and intellectual expectations. The mastery Wellesley graduates demonstrate across the professional and vocational spectrum, and the influence they wield—whether in their own communities or on the world stage—is testament to a singularly empowering undergraduate experience. Wellesley’s lively academic community places a high value on rigorous, probing inquiry, and creative, cross-discipline thinking. Its collaborative approach to scholarship encourages students to question, debate, and refine their points of view, not only with each other, but with our world-class faculty—often by working directly with them on groundbreaking projects. A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the “real world” in its graduates, in terms of ability to think, act, and contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest. The “Full-Engagement” Advantage Wellesley’s full-engagement academic philosophy extends to the running of the College itself. The student voice is central to decision-making here; students serve on major committees of the Board of Trustees, participate in faculty search, and contribute to strategic planning. Students participate in a wide range of extracurricular projects: The College and its surrounding community and the greater Boston area offer hundreds of internships, advocacy projects, and the rare advantages of being a vital member of the single largest academic “hotspot” in the country. Expected to be fully engaged while at Wellesley, students carry this sense of purposeful involvement and personal commitment throughout life. It is the signal mark of a Wellesley woman. A Widely Envied Campus Environment The sheer sense of scale of the breathtaking natural environment, in which buildings are thoughtfully sited, distinguish Wellesley’s physical setting in the classically New England town of Wellesley, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston. Home to leading institutions such as the Albright Institute, the Knapp Social Science Center, the Davis Museum, The Newhouse Center for the Humanities, and the world-renowned Wellesley Centers for Women, Wellesley’s resources are a magnet not only for the surrounding community and metropolitan area; they attract attention—and scholars—from around the world. Commitment to Women Everything about Wellesley College bespeaks its commitment to women, and to providing them with an unexcelled educational experience that honors and cultivates not only what is best about each of them, and their own potential, but about what women offer our world.

Green Dot Public Schools is committed to changing the landscape of public education in Los Angeles so that every child can go to a good school and be successful in college, leadership, and life. Green Dot is fulfilling this mission by operating high-achieving public charter schools focused on graduating all students and fully preparing them for college. In addition, Green Dot is dedicated to helping parents throughout the city organize and demand more of their neighborhood schools, the overarching goal being to encourage the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to implement bold reform and improve the city's public schools. Green Dot currently operates eighteen schools in the highest-need areas of the city; fourteen high schools and four middle schools. Almost half of these are Turnaround schools, including five as part of the rejuvenation of Locke High School in Watts, begun in 2008. Locke’s dramatic transformation under Green Dot after only three years, encouraged LAUSD to select Green Dot to Turnaround two more persistently low-performing district schools: Jordan High School in Watts, and Henry Clay Middle School in South Central Los Angeles. In August 2011, these schools re-opened as Green Dot charter schools. Unique in the nation for a major charter management organization, Green Dot is re-defining labor/management relations in public education by employing unionized teachers and unionized classified staff under reform contracts focused on what is good for students. Together, we are demonstrating that turning around low-performing schools is possible, and can be achieved with the same dollars that LAUSD currently spends on similar schools across the city. Across the city, Green Dot’s high school students are closing the education gap with students in more affluent neighborhoods. They are achieving this despite entering 9th grade several grade levels behind from district middle schools. To address this handicap, Green Dot has opened four new charter middle schools to begin preparing students earlier in the rigors of a college-prep curriculum. Green Dot schools demonstrate that public schools can do a far better job of educating students if they are operated more efficiently - and if the focus is kept on students. Green Dot envisions a public school system in Los Angeles made up of small, high-performing schools that each exemplify a belief in the potential of all students, foster teacher creativity, encourage parental involvement, and ultimately prepare students for college, leadership, and life.
