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.

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.
