This Community Reads!

is a program that encourages the Wells College community to engage in dialogue around a book that starts discussions and fuels ideas on campus.
 
The 2016-2017 text is Paul Rogat Loeb's "The impossible will take a little while: Perseverance and hope in troubled times."  Described as:
 
"The Impossible creates a conversation among some of the most visionary and eloquent voices of our time: Think Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Bill Moyers, Arundhati Roy, Tony Kushner,Bill McKibben, Paul Hawken, Pablo Neruda and Vaclav Havel. Alice Walker, Mary Pipher, Jonathan Kozol, Diane Ackerman, and Marian Wright Edelman. Cornel West, Terry Tempest Williams, Dan Savage, Desmond Tutu, and Howard Zinn. These essays, poems, and stories, along with Loeb's extended introductions, teach us how to keep on working for a more humane world, replenish the wellsprings of our commitment, and continue no matter how hard it sometimes seems. Loeb has included pieces that explore the historical, political, ecological and spiritual frameworks that help us to persist— with concrete examples of how people have faced despair and overcome it. They examine what it was like to confront South African apartheid, the Egyptian and Eastern European dictatorships, Mississippi's entrenched segregation, the corporations driving global climate change, or the Robber Barons of 100 years ago. The stories don't sugarcoat the obstacles. But they inspire hope by showing what keeps us keeping on--even when the odds seem overwhelming. They replenish the wellsprings of our commitment."

Strategic Planning
2015-2017 Strategic Plan (.pdf, 103K)

The College’s Vision and Strategic Plan for 2015-17 has been endorsed by the Board of Trustees at their October meeting. With this approval, an oversight and implementation committee will be organized and begin to assign responsibility, determine the appropriate timing and resources, and codify the measures of success and assessment plans. 

As you may recall, the Cabinet discussed the draft plan with faculty, staff, students, Trustees, and Village government and business leaders, and shared it with alumni via email. We considered the thoughtful feedback offered, and modified the plan accordingly. In addition, we received comments, feedback and suggestions that we will incorporate into our operations and/or day-to-day work, although they are not reflected directly in the strategic plan. By design, and of necessity, this short-term plan must be narrowly focused on those key strategies that will bring Wells immediate successes — even as they contribute to long-term health and vitality.

Thank you for your active participation in the development of the plan – your input and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. We look forward to working across the campus community as we bring these ideas and goals to fruition.
