Universal Student Experiences
When the world calls, we answer
Because ideas and experiences shouldn’t be limited by resources, Colby invites enlightened investors to shape opportunities for students to deepen their education and improve their life outcomes through a new model for the liberal arts. Our new DavisConnects program guarantees a global experience for all students, regardless of financial ability, or personal and professional relationships. This makes Colby the first leading liberal arts college to provide funding that gives every student unparalleled access to internships, research, and global experiences.
Opportunities surround us in abundance
At its core Colby must be the best of what it wants its students to become—intellectual, engaged, equitable, ethical, inclusive, and innovative. Colby is committed to aggressively recruiting highly-qualified students from every social, cultural, and geographic background. Students experiencing a diverse campus population are afforded the opportunity to develop enriched points of view born of robust social discourse that help shape values and a commitment to civic engagement. Financial aid awards can promote student college success by fostering student engagement without regard to financial hardship.
Our ambitions in action
A powerful foundation for creativity, dialogue and risk-taking, the arts at Colby are integral to empowering individuals and preparing them to deal with complexity, diversity and change. More than a space, a place or hub, the Arts and Innovation Center will serve as a creative laboratory for the performing arts as well as for envisioning new ways of interpreting the curriculum. This includes building uniquely flexible, multipurpose spaces for teaching, performing, working, and creating, and the use of multimedia and interactive technologies.
