From the President

Welcome! Wellesley Alum Pride Alliance (WAPA) is a shared identity group for LGBTQ+ Wellesley alums.  Our mission is to build a community with LGBTQ+ alums by providing opportunities to share experiences, support each other, and connect with current students. 


WAPA was founded in 2017 after years of work by several dedicated alums. For 2017-2018, WAPA will be led by a Temporary Governing Board while we build a membership base to approve a Governing Board in 2018. We encourage all LGBTQ+ alums to join our group and let us know what you'd like WAPA to do for you in the coming years. To contact us with questions, concerns, or to make sure you're on our mailing list, please email We look forward to building a supportive community for Wellesley's LGBTQ+ alums.
