Our Mission:

The Goldfarb Student Engagement Committee (GSEC) works to advance the Goldfarb Center’s efforts to connect Colby to the world of public affairs and inspire active citizenship while exploring creative, interdisciplinary approaches to complex challenges. The GSEC collaborates with Goldfarb Center faculty and staff to foster student engagement with public affairs through participation in Goldfarb Center events and leadership training.


Our Vision:

To cultivate a community within Colby that values diversity of thought and promotes intellectual discussions about current public affairs issues.


Structure:

The GSEC consists of a larger engagement committee and a smaller Executive Board, selected on the basis of leadership, scholarship, commitment to public affairs, professionalism, and desire to advance the mission of the Goldfarb Center. The Executive Board is comprised of two co-chairs and two representatives from each class year. Board members help develop and execute a slate of events that relate to pressing public affairs issues, in collaboration with the larger committee.
