The @BostonGlobe's @TheMurrayWhyte found the @ColbyMuseum's "Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948-1960" to be "exhilaratingly" unfamiliar, noting that it "constantly surprises, and as a result is more than occasionally thrilling." Read more from his ...thoughtful review.

Colby's Statement on Diversity

Colby College is dedicated to the education of humane, thoughtful, and engaged persons prepared to respond to the challenges of an increasingly diverse and global society and to the issues of justice that arise therein. The College also is committed to fostering a fully inclusive campus community, enriched by persons of different races, gender identities, ethnicities, nationalities, economic backgrounds, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, political beliefs, and spiritual values. We strive to confront and overcome actions and attitudes that discourage the widest possible range of participation in our community, and we seek to deepen our understanding of diversity in our daily relationships and in our dealings as an institution. 

What diversity means to us

Colby has adopted the term “diverse” to describe the kind of community we hope to build and maintain on Mayflower Hill. Our definition of what constitutes diversity may—and probably should—change over time, but when we promote diversity now we are expressing our commitment to an inclusive campus community, enriched by persons of different races, genders, ethnicities, nationalities, economic backgrounds, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, and spiritual values; to ensuring equal opportunity for all who work or study here; to sustaining a climate of civility, mutual respect, and tolerance; to promoting the free and open exchange of ideas, including unpopular ideas; to an open and inclusive governing and decision-making process; and to broadly educating students for life in a complex world.
