Educating the Whole Person

The Educating the Whole Person team will explore the following questions:

  1. How can we foster a Bates experience that supports all our students and enables them to develop and thrive throughout their lives, recognizing that their needs, goals, and aspirations change over time?
  2. How can we create a Bates experience that intentionally engages the transformative power of our differences while fostering a shared set of understandings, values, and experiences?
