The OCS Faculty Mentor Program is designed to help students fully integrate their education and learning experiences abroad into their Colby course of study, specifically via independent research and explicit cultural engagement. The main objective is to have faculty engage with students through providing advice and guidance prior to, during, and after students’ time off campus.

A pilot program started in Spring 2018 with a group of 6 faculty members and 60 students. For the first time in AY 2019-2020, all students studying away participated in the OCS Faculty Mentor Programs. Details about the program can be found here: OCS Faculty Mentor Program
