The faculty, staff, and students at Wells each have their own committee for the purpose of advancing Inclusion and Intercultural Excellence on campus. Additionally, the President's Advisory Committee on Diversity, Inclusion and Intercultural Excellence was convened by President Gibralter to unite the efforts of these three committees and provide a voice for and connection to the College's administration.
