International Educator - March/April 2016 - 51

class of 2014, praises the college's focus on
global learning.
"Classes offer wonderful opportunities for
multicultural engagement," writes Hammah,
from Ghana. "I thoroughly enjoyed classes
where professors encouraged diversity of
thought among students in a spirit of mutual
respect and intellectual curiosity. For example, in 'Economic Development in the Age of
Globalization,' we had to sit next to a different student in every class. We were randomly
paired up for debates, emboldened to contradict each other in classroom discussions, and
motivated to pursue conversations outside of
class, leading to many unexpected friendships."

Nurturing the
World's Future Leaders
Developing leadership skills is a priority of
all female-exclusive colleges, and that starts
with building strong networks among students as well as alumnae.

"Students definitely gain the leadership
training and the critical thinking skills and
the opportunities to really explore and develop their own identities out from under the
umbrella of a male-dominated society," says
Karen Zuffante Pabon, director of Wellesley's
Slater International Center and an adviser
for international students and scholars. "[At
an all-women's institution], students have
the freedom to be in a very stimulating and
emotionally supportive environment and the
opportunity to befriend other women from
all over the world. I think that the idea of creating a community here among women, it
may be a reason why international students
may integrate a little bit better at women's
colleges-because the whole idea of forming relationships and building a community
is a common value in many cultures. And it's
also a common value for women in general."
Wellesley senior Pelumi Botti, a native
of Nigeria who grew up primarily in Mba-

bane, Swaziland, was attracted to Wellesley's
"ethos" of building awareness of global issues and preparing women to serve in their
communities. Botti appreciates the "intense
debates" and "long conversations" she's had
both in and out of the classroom, and also
notes that she's benefitted from the college's
strong alumnae network.
"Attending a women's college has definitely renewed my self confidence and
personal ambition," says Botti, a senior
majoring in international relations. "Being
surrounded  by  many ambitious,  self-assured, and talented women has definitely
influenced me. I am not afraid to dream big
dreams and pursue opportunities because I
am a woman."
