Funding Resources:

In addition to requesting funds from the Pugh Center, campus community members can request funds from the Cultural Events Committee.

The Cultural Events Committee (CEC) accepts requests for co-sponsorship of events, learning opportunities, and lectures. Requesting funds includes submission of a completed Cultural Events Form.  Due to the proposal review process (all proposals are reviewed by the Cultural events Committee) so please submit in a timely manner.  Please note if the CEC agrees to co-sponsor, it is expected that publicity will reflect our sponsorship and acknowledgment at the event should be provided.

The funds that support the CEC’s sponsorship are:

  • The Guy P. Gannett Lecture Fund – Established in 1963 to be devoted to “general scholarly subjects not covered by established lectures at Colby.”
  • Herbert Carlyle Libby Lecture Fund – Established in 1997 to “provide support for bringing speakers to campus.”
  • Donna and Martin Ritter Lecture Fund – Established in 1999 to “support lectures and other student programs that would offer alternatives to social activities centered on alcohol.”
