Student Leadership

The Goldfarb Student Executive Board featured below, consists of two co-chairs and eight student representatives. Students self-nominate themselves for the positions and are selected by their peers based on leadership, scholarship, commitment to public affairs, professionalism, and desire to advance the mission of the Goldfarb Center. The board meets weekly and is actively engaged in developing and executing events, building their own leadership skills, and networking directly with featured guests and speakers. They are all deeply dedicated to promoting student initiatives and are passionate about being informed and engaged in current events.

The Executive Board leads the larger Goldfarb Student Engagement Committee (GSEC), which any Colby student is welcomed to join. The GSEC works to advance the Goldfarb Center’s mission to connect the Colby community to our nation’s most pressing current events, foster awareness of the role of public policy, and inspire active citizenship. The vision of GSEC is to cultivate a community within Colby that values diversity of thought and promotes intellectual discussions about current public affairs issues. If you are interested in joining GSEC, reach out to the 2021-22 co-chairs Andrew Ordentlich ’22 and Lauren Gervais ’22. Board members for 2021-22 are featured below. Note that the profiles of our newest members, Avery Marti ’22 and Gabriel Rivas Orellana ’23, will be coming soon.
