Mission Statement

The Student Advisory Board to the Department of French and Italian Studies was founded in the spring of 2017 as a way to offer students the opportunity to provide input and offer suggestions to the department. Collaborating with professors and with each other, Board members work to create an environment on campus where students can celebrate their enthusiasm for French, Francophone, and Italian studies. In addition to planning and promoting events on and off campus, the Student Advisory Board seeks to support the department in expanding its programming and visibility in the Colby community.
