Wells College strives to become a diverse and inclusive community where individuals live, work, teach and learn with a goal of promoting and maintaining an atmosphere of respect. Membership is a privilege that requires all individuals to treat others humanely, and with mutual understanding and tolerance. Wells College fosters an environment in which free speech, openness, acceptance, and inclusion—even of those ideas or beliefs that may be controversial—are appreciated and considered in their appropriate settings.
Discrimination on the basis of (but not limited to) race, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, sex, age, varying physical or mental abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, or political beliefs will not be tolerated. Verbally or physically abusive or harassing behavior that makes the College atmosphere intimidating, hostile, or threatening is unacceptable. All community members are subject to the laws that govern the rest of society.
Information about the implementation of the Community Standards Statement in the classroom, workplace and residence halls, as well as responding to violations of the Community Standards Statement, can be found in the Community Handbook.
