Uncompromising Commitment

Your support helps maintain an uncompromising commitment to education and premiere liberal arts offerings.

There’s something special about the faculty at Skidmore College. They not only root for you in the classroom, but they’ll also sit in the stands for your basketball game and come to your music recital or research presentation.

Because of your commitment to the future success of our students, many faculty members like Professor Jeff Segrave, are spreading the joy of learning throughout the campus. Watch this video to see his incredible impact.

Dear Class of 2023…Love, Skidmore

Over the past four years, members of the Class of 2023 have left their mark on the Skidmore community – in the classroom, in athletics, on stages, in clubs, and in all aspects of campus life.

Skidmore faculty and staff who have witnessed their journey – through adversity and triumphs – have come to know them like family.

As the graduates prepare for the next phase of their lives, several faculty and staff are sharing what they’ll miss and remember most about the Class of 2023 and, with hope and excitement, they are extending their well wishes for the future.

Featuring, in order of appearance:

“Creativity is the heartbeat of the Skidmore education. It permeates every aspect of Skidmore, from the culture to the classroom. It makes for an exciting liberal arts experience and fosters a tremendous joy in learning. To be able to think creatively and critically — to contemplate beauty and art, science, the humanities and civic engagement — prepares students for a lifetime of learning.”
