Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs

 

The Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs connects Colby to the world of public affairs and inspires active citizenship to explore creative, interdisciplinary approaches to complex challenges.

Through hundreds of events featuring world leaders, innovative thinkers, influential politicians, and cutting-edge academics, the center has set a high standard for public affairs programming at a liberal arts institution.

Founded in 2003 with a generous gift from Colby Trustee William Goldfarb ’68, P’00, the center contributes to the intellectual life of the College in varied, significant ways. It aims to link the Colby community with local, state, national, and international leaders to explore creative, interdisciplinary approaches to complex challenges.


Public Affairs Programming

Through hundreds of events featuring world leaders, innovative thinkers, influential politicians, and cutting-edge academics, the Goldfarb Center has set a high standard for public affairs programming at a liberal arts institution. Our public affairs initiatives offer students and faculty unique opportunities to hear from some of the best minds, often in intimate settings. Modes of student learning are changing rapidly, and varied, interactive programs sometimes better tap student interest and convey complex ideas.  Our aim is to offer lively, pedagogically-enhanced programming for students and the broader Colby community.


Supported Opportunities

Through internship and networking opportunities, research grants, and course development stipends, the Goldfarb Center makes a vital difference in the lives and educational experience of Colby students.


Get Involved

It is our goal to engage the entire Colby community in ways that bring us together to discuss the important topics of our time. Join the discussion!
