Deborah Taylor, Academic Vice President & Dean of Faculty

The Colby-Sawyer College faculty and I welcome you to the academic programs of the college. We invite you to learn with us through our liberal education program, which calls upon you to make connections among ideas, areas of knowledge, and actions; our excellent academic major and minor programs, which require you to develop deep understanding in the academic areas you choose to pursue; and, our Wesson Honors Program, which encourages invited students to challenge themselves academically and as members of the wider community. I invite you to explore the information on the web site about these programs, and I am certain that you will find many you wish to explore further.

Colby-Sawyer College also considers that learning occurs across the college – not just in classrooms, but also in residence halls, in clubs and organizations, on athletic fields, in the community, and in all of the formal and informal settings in which students, faculty, and staff share the life of the college.
