From the President
On behalf of the entire Babson College community, I want to extend our thanks and appreciation to all of our neighbors in Wellesley and Needham for your friendship and support in 2014, a year in which we were proud to be named Money magazine’s top college in the country. While Babson is a global institution with alumni in 114 countries around the world, we never forget how fortunate we are to call these two magnificent towns our home.
The spirit of cooperation and a shared commitment to education and public service from the citizens of Wellesley and Needham are so important to Babson’s mission: developing future entrepreneurial leaders who create positive economic and social change everywhere. The work we do in the classroom, on campus, and in the community positively impacts the local economy, contributes to diversity, and inspires all of us to share our knowledge and experiences with one another.
In the following pages, you will see some of the ways Babson has made a positive impact in our community during the previous year. Highlighted within are our newly opened Park Manor West residence hall, featuring the Leonard A. Schlesinger Innovation Center, as well as our recently launched Global Scholars Program, which has brought an exceptionally talented group of international students to our campus. In addition, we showcase recent examples of groundbreaking thought leadership from our dedicated and forward-thinking faculty.
I encourage you to continue to visit our campus, attend our arts and athletics events, and take advantage of the many opportunities for Wellesley and Needham residents to connect with Babson.
President, Babson College
