The Wheelock Compact
Are You Tough Enough to Inspire a World of Good?
The Wheelock Compact is an expression of the common purpose shared between the College and its students. It is an agreement we make with each other to engage, connect, and act in ways that will inspire a world of good.
What you bring. You bring all the characteristics and traits that will make you tough enough to succeed, academically and professionally: Passion, strength, empathy, patience, tolerance, understanding, and creativity. An unwillingness to accept the status quo, and a willingness to work—as hard as you possibly can—to bring positive change to one child, one family, one community, one world.
What we offer. A learning experience that is both challenging and supportive; a community that is both diverse and united; a location that offers more cultural, social, and educational opportunities than perhaps any other place on earth. And a promise to thoroughly prepare you—regardless of career path, regardless of the challenges you will have to overcome—to succeed in our shared mission to inspire a world of good.
What you will become. You will become a more confident, knowledgeable, capable advocate for change. You will become more aware of the forces and factors that impact lives—your own and others—and what you can do to serve, lead, and succeed in any endeavor. You will become more passionate about learning, more inspired to create socially just and sustainable societies, and more capable of inspiring a world of good than ever before.
