About the Goldfarb Center

We connect the Colby community to our nation’s most pressing current events, foster awareness of the role of public policy, and inspire active citizenship. We spark thought-provoking conversations through high-profile public events and create networking opportunities for students interested in public affairs. We believe in a nonpartisan, inclusive approach that welcomes every opinion as part of a healthy discourse.  

Letter from the Executive Director

As we reflect on our accomplishments in 2023, we want to express our gratitude for the incredible support of the Goldfarb community. Your collective enthusiasm has been the driving force behind the Center’s success.

This year, we revitalized key programs, connected students with practical opportunities, and established innovative partnerships that bridge policy and diverse fields – solidifying Goldfarb as a hub for interdisciplinary programming and discourse at Colby. 

This has been a transformative year, with packed audiences and deep engagement from our students and broader community, and we wanted to take a moment to share the top 10 highlights of our year together. 

Here’s to continuing this momentum in the years ahead!
