Dean Melendez Leaves Wesleyan!

Dear Members of the Class of 2018:

I hope this finds you well rested from the first year of college and well into your summer plans. It is with mixed emotions that I inform you I will be taking a position at Connecticut College and leaving Wesleyan as of July 21, 2015.

It has been my pleasure to work with you during this past year as you transitioned to college life and the Wesleyan community. As you reflect on your first year, I hope that you will implement strategies to use the abundant resources on campus as you move forward in the coming years. As I have said countless times, smart students at Wesleyan use the resources and ask for assistance.

The Dean’s Office will begin the search for a class dean immediately. In the meantime, Ms. Teri Maheu will be the point person. If you have any questions or concerns before your arrival in September, please email or call at 860.685.2765. She will direct you to the appropriate dean.

May you thrive at Wesleyan! I’m sure I will bump into you sometime in the near future. As an alumna, I will be back for Homecoming, Reunion & Commencement!
With my warmest wishes for you! GO WES!
Dean Melendez
