Pugh Center


In 1996, The Pugh Center was established to promote multicultural communication and understanding. As the world has become increasingly more connected, and colleges have increased their efforts of diversity and inclusion, the Pugh Center’s mission has evolved to also include efforts to promote diversity, inclusion, and social justice.

The Center serves as a catalyst for a variety of programs that support this mission and that assist in the College’s efforts to foster a campus climate that embraces, supports, and celebrates an increasingly diverse community. It also provides a safe space for Colby students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented within the Colby community, including but not limited to such identities as racial, gender, and sexual orientation.
