- Wellesley College was founded in 1870 by Henry Fowle Durant and Pauline Fowle Durant. An impassioned believer in educational opportunity for women, Mr. Durant wanted to prepare women for “…great conflicts, for vast reforms in social life.” When he founded the College, Mr. Durant proclaimed, “women can do the work. I give them the chance.”
- He was referring not only to the 314 students comprising the first class, but also to its initial staff of seven appointed professors and 14 teachers, all, but one, women. Above all, he referred to Ada Howard whom he appointed president of his daring venture — a college designed to offer supposedly delicate 19th-century ladies education as rigorous and demanding as that available to the most able male scholars of their day.
Classes at Wellesley typically range in size from 12 to 24 students, depending on the level of instruction. With a student-faculty ratio of 8:1, classes are small enough for students to get personal attention, but large enough to foster debate and exchanges of information.
