Report of the Commission on the Future of Wellesley College.
Wellesley Coll., MA.
The Commission on the Future of Wellesley College was established because of problems created out of changes in social and educational patterns that have come with the second half of the 20th Century. In the fall of 1969 the Commission discussed 5 possible directions for the future of the institution as a whole: (1) to continue with the present curricular pattern and student body; (2) to move toward becoming a public institution within the state system; (3) to transfer to another location in order to affiliate with a men's college, or to establish a coordinate college for men; (4) to become a coeducational institution in the conventional sense; or (5) to develop a flexible, multifaceted approach to educational change and the composition of the student body within the context of present location and educational framework. The fifth option was the one adopted. Recommendations are made in this report concerning the educational program at Wellesley, the education of women, the education of minorities, counseling programs, and student body composition. (HS)
