The Colby Liberal Arts Symposium (CLAS) is a celebration of student scholarship. On April 28, 2016, the Colby community will come together to recognize and celebrate students’ many forms of scholarly engagement.

Students will share their research and creative scholarship in posters, presentations, and other projects. They will also participate in performances and other expressions of intellectual engagement.


Watch: A Celebration of Scholarship


About the Symposium

Colby’s faculty voted to create CLAS to extend the positive impact of its predecessor—the Colby Undergraduate Research Symposium. By dedicating a full day to student scholarship, rather than multiple days when presentations competed with class time, Colby allows students to engage with faculty and the community in more direct and focused ways. The event will be launched the preceding evening with Arts@CLAS, 6-9 p.m., Wednesday, April 27, in the Colby College Museum of Art, with a celebration of the arts. CLAS events on April 29, will run from 9 a.m. through 9 p.m.
