Investments show dramatic, early results
Five years ago, we took the unusual step of planning a series of investments in the College and the community to ensure both would grow together, in synergy, to create a stronger Central Maine and a stronger Colby. We knew it was important to measure whether our efforts were bearing fruit, so we sought an independent assessment of our investments over the past five years to gauge their impact.
Today, the nature and pace of our investments are having a significant positive effect on the College, Greater Waterville, and across Maine. The investments and partnerships we’ve created have our region countering tough economic headwinds and creating a model for communities on how to navigate them.
This report is the start of ongoing assessment. As investments by Colby and others reshape this community, we look forward to continued analysis of the results.
