Launched during Jan Plan 2018, the Washington D.C. Facilitated Internship Program provides up to 10 Colby students with an opportunity to intern in D.C. and engage in valuable networking opportunities with fellow students and the strong network of Colby alumni, parents, and friends.
The Goldfarb Center and DavisConnects, together with the Office of Alumni Experience and Networks, will fly up to 15 students for a two-night trip to Washington, D.C. to engage with experts on public policy issues, explore career opportunities in government and politics, network with alumni, and tour the nation’s capital.
Each year, the Goldfarb Center hosts a one-day conference for student journalists. Held in conjunction with the annual Lovejoy Convocation, students representing institutions from across New England come together for a series of lectures and interactive workshops led by some of the nation’s most prestigious journalists.
Through facilitated discussions, skill-based workshops, conversations with women leaders, networking sessions, field trips, and more, the Goldfarb Center and Career Center’s Women’s Leadership Seminar offers comprehensive leadership training with a focus on issues confronting women in the workforce today. Students are encouraged to participate as a cohort to get the most out of each component of the program and receive a certificate of completion.
Funded through a grant from the Goldfarb Center, the Maine Concussion Management Initiative (MCMI) has been a pioneering force in concussion research and educational outreach. The program was launched in 2009 with a mission to promote increased awareness about concussions among athletes, coaches, parents and school administrators. To date, the project has been implemented in more than 100 Maine high schools and the New England Small College Athletic Conference.
