Statement of Support for Inclusion - February 2017
We live in a tumultuous and uncertain time when many of the rights to fair and inclusive
treatment that we take for granted may now be under threat. The Management and Business
Department at Skidmore College wishes to take this opportunity to reaffirm our commitment
to preserve a welcoming, supportive and open-minded environment that does not discriminate
on the basis of gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, age, ability,
gender expression and identity, or socio-economic status. The best business practices
are those that embrace diversity, and we wish to continue in this inclusionary tradition.
We pride ourselves on listening respectfully to multiple voices and working strenuously
to challenge uninformed and unscientific prejudice. Our ultimate goal is to create
and foster a vibrant and inclusive learning environment.
