At Skidmore, we believe a great education
is about putting academic theory and
creative expression into practice
—what founder
Lucy Skidmore Scribner called the “mind and the hand.” It’s a place
where faculty and students work together, then figure out how to
use what they’ve learned to make a difference. This practical focus
often leads to cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary courses of
study where students carry multiple majors, collaborative research
is common, most students study abroad, and internships and service-
learning courses are standard. Skidmore students develop into
independent, creative problem-solvers who aren’t restricted to
looking at things in traditional ways.
