We must make the
building of a
free society once more
an intellectual adventure,
a deed of courage.
F.A. Hayek

Wellesley students and faculty participate actively in on-campus discussions and debates with each other and outside speakers, and pursue many opportunities with national and international organizations devoted to the expansion of freedom in a variety of contexts.
