The Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs connects Colby to the world of public affairs and inspires active citizenship to explore creative, interdisciplinary approaches to complex challenges.
Through hundreds of events featuring world leaders, innovative thinkers, influential politicians, and cutting-edge academics, the center has set a high standard for public affairs programming at a liberal arts institution.
Founded in 2003 with a generous gift from Colby Trustee William Goldfarb ’68, P’00, the center contributes to the intellectual life of the College in varied, significant ways. It aims to link the Colby community with local, state, national, and international leaders to explore creative, interdisciplinary approaches to complex challenges.
Through internship and networking opportunities, research grants, prize money and course development stipends, the Goldfarb Center makes a vital difference in the lives and educational experience of Colby students.
It is our goal to engage the entire Colby community in ways that bring us together to discuss the important topics of our time. Join the discussion!
