for Exempt (Administrative/Professional) and Non-Exempt (Support Staff) Employees
One of the facets of Skidmore that has most impressed me as your president is the College’s commitment to creating and sustaining a true community of faculty, staff, and students.
As you’re no doubt aware, few goals are more noteworthy, yet few are as challenging to achieve. But there’s little doubt in my mind that achieving and sustaining a community of those for whom Skidmore is home is not just desirable but absolutely critical to our future.
How and when we get to that goal is something determined not by the College but by each of us. And it’s quite literally as simple as how we value and therefore respond to each other as coworkers and colleagues, how we conduct ourselves in language and behavior, how we commit to doing our jobs, as individuals or in teams, as effectively and efficiently as possible.
Whatever your role or job title, whatever your background and experience, I look to
you as a partner in helping make Skidmore as great as it can possibly be as a College,
professionally satisfying and personally fulfilling a workplace as it can be throughout your career.
Welcome to Skidmore College! I’m very glad you’re here.
Philip A. Glotzbach
President of Skidmore College
