There will be ongoing weekly discussions featuring different topics on the Colby Book Club’s online forum May 27 - July 22. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with alumni, family and friends and to engage in meaningful discussions about great books. Join anytime to be part of the conversation.
Join Christel Kesler, associate professor of sociology at Colby, in conversation with Emma Pierson, senior researcher at Microsoft Research, as they discuss Pierson’s groundbreaking work using data science to uncover and combat racial and gender disparities in policing and healthcare.
In this event moderated by Dean of the College Karlene Burrell-McRae ’94, Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Tayo Clyburn will highlight the campus-wide initiatives supporting the College’s DEI efforts and explore the ways in which the Colby community can come together to support this work.
Starting July 1, the whole Colby community can connect to discuss a new movie each month and discuss important topics, as all selections will be connected to social justice, history, and social issues. Joining the club is completely free, and all movie selections will be available to stream.
