About Us

In 2002, Wesleyan University, along with Oberlin, Amherst, Grinnell, Pomona, Reed, Smith, and Williams received a major collaborative grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help strengthen faculty career development. At Wesleyan, we continue to bring faculty members together to foster a sharing of ideas. Through grants, workshops, seminars, publications, and formal and informal discussions, we hope to cultivate dialogue among our own faculty members and encourage association with faculty members at other academic institutions. Generous support from friends helps to keep our Center thriving--many sincere thanks to our benefactors and to our advisory board.
