Educating for the Global World
Welcome to your journey.
To thrive in today’s rapidly changing global age, you need to be ready to engage meaningfully with today’s world of unprecedented diversity. Colby’s commitment to providing students with quality off-campus academic opportunities has been a longstanding part of its educational philosophy. You will be given the chance to wade or dive into another culture and experience a wealth of knowledge and self-awareness, enriching your undergraduate experience.
July 2021 Update for Sophomores Planning to study away as juniors in 21/22:
Colby students studying away in Fall/21 Spring 22 are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are seeking an exemption, you will need to contact the Colby Health Center for paperwork on that.
We are beginning to hear of cancellations for programs in Australia for SP 22. If you need to seek an alternative, please feel free to book an advising appointment. We strongly recommend applying to your SP 22 program over the summer so that you secure your spot and have your plans set.
Please note that OCS is moving to Grossman this summer to become part of the DavisConnects team. When you return to campus in Fall 21, you will find us in Grossman on the first floor. We look forward to seeing you!
**NOTE: BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT: PLEASE BE SURE TO BOOK APPOINTMENTS THE NIGHT BEFORE AS WE NEED TIME TO SET THE GOOGLE MEETINGS. Thank you.
OCS Faculty Mentor Program
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. Student projects focus on research or explicit cultural engagement and are featured on the “Off Mayflower Hill” Blog.
