The mission of the Wesleyan College Archives is to promote knowledge and understanding of the origins, experiences, programs, and goals of Wesleyan College and its special role in the education of women. In accomplishing the mission, the Archives will identify, appraise, collect, organize, describe, make available, and preserve records that document the history and development of Wesleyan College; provide adequate facilities for housing and preserving such records;and serve teaching, research, and scholarship by making available and encouraging the use of its collections. Wesleyan College’s 181-year history includes parts that are deeply troubling, and we are not proud of them. They do not, however, reflect who we are today, and we are committed to not only acknowledging previous failures, but to taking meaningful steps forward to ensure such disturbing behavior could never happen again. We also celebrate how far our College has come in becoming one of the most diverse small colleges in America. We will continue to strive to become the inclusive community we are called to be, where every member of our community can trust, learn from, and care for one another. Our story is one of hope, where the lessons of past history will serve to make us stronger.
