Colby's Environmental Leadership

June 9, 2017

Dear Colby Community,

The College’s solar array is taking shape on Washington Street as you approach Mayflower Hill. This initiative builds on Colby’s extraordinary commitment to environmental sustainability on campus and the significant investments we have made to ensure Colby leads liberal arts colleges in the study of the environment and climate change.

These investments include the recent establishment of the Buck Lab for the Environment and Climate Change and the Russ Cole Research Fellows Program and Resident Lectureship, which provide our students with unparalleled opportunities for research, internships, and global experiences related to environmental issues.

They also include the hiring this year of five distinguished faculty who work on issues related to environmental science and policy and new partnerships with Allen Island, the Up East Foundation, and the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences.
