Students at Wells use their energy, enthusiasm, and the lessons that they learn—in the classroom and from each other—to make a difference. The members of our community have many opportunities to engage with each other and work for a better world. Clubs and organizations provide a location and organization for this work, as they meet and continue their programs each semester.
Student clubs and organizations that promote diversity on our campus, with their mission statements provided by club leadership:Access for All Abilities: Spreads awareness about disability culture and educates the community to promote equal opportunities, improved accessibility, and empowerment
- Access for All Abilities: Spreads awareness about disability culture and educates the community to promote equal opportunities, improved accessibility, and empowerment
- Black Student Union: Open to all students who want to promote black or african american culture in a supportive environment
- Cultura, Lucha, Experiencia (CLE): Celebrates the different rich and diverse Latin cultures, realizing that a uniao faz a forca, and unites by sharing our tradiciones y religiones.
- Gender Equity Center (GEC): Provides resources on sexual health, assault, intersectional feminism, civil rights, and body positivity in a safe space, library system, and meeting space.
- Japanese Cultural Club: Helps the Japanese exchange students get acclimated to the college campus while spreading Japanese culture.
- Wells PRIDE: Celebrates LGBTQ+ identities and experiences and acts as a safe space for open dialogue, building a safer community for LGBTQ+ peoples.
These clubs have their budget and meeting spaces decided each year by their leadership (usually a chair, vice or co-chair, secretary, and treasurer) under the guidance of the Collegiate Association and College staff. Membership is nearly always open to all—as is the opportunity to start a new club or revive one that has lapsed.
