This college was founded on Enlightenment principles...
that people possess the capacity for reason and critical thinking,
and that free and open debate is the lifeblood of a democracy.

The Freedom Project

The Freedom Project at Wellesley is devoted to the promotion of freedom of expression, pluralism and tolerance on campus and in the greater world. 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.
