A vibrant and fully integrated academic, residential, and cocurricular experience is sustained by a diverse and supportive community. Located in Waterville, Maine, Colby is a global institution with students representing nearly every U.S. state and approximately 70 countries.

Why Colby?

Tom and Catherine Tinsley have always been advocates for a liberal arts education. They are longtime Maine residents, and several members of their family have attended Colby College.

Colby is a liberal arts college that tenures around 6 professors a year — which is an appropriate size for this pilot project. Colby is interested in making this a long-term program if it is able to secure philanthropic contributions to endow it.

They believe that the President, David Greene, can give the attention and feedback needed for the project to succeed.
