The Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement brings Colby students, faculty, and staff together to make connections between work in the classroom and contemporary political, economic, social and environmental issues.


Founded in 2003 with a generous gift from Colby Trustee William Goldfarb ’68, P ’00, the center aims to link the Colby community with local, state, national, and international leaders to explore creative, interdisciplinary approaches to complex challenges.
