A colleague and I both have identical iMacs with identical external Dell monitors. Our iMac monitors look about the same, but he's got his color on the Dell looking perfect and I can't seem to get mine to match it. Is there a way to just export the color profile on his side and import it over on my side?

You'll find the color profiles in /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/. Just copy them to the other machine, same directory, and select in System Preferences » Displays » Color. Make sure to deselect Show profiles for this display only.
