Why Support Special Programs?
The ODSP is responsible for a rich and diverse array of programs, many cross-disciplinary, that supplement and extend the academic calendar and campus resources of the undergraduate college into the summer months. ODSP offerings target many audiences and take many forms, including adult education and a degree program for graduate students; residencies, institutes, courses and workshops in the liberal arts; and summer conferences.
The ODSP encourages academic innovation and experimentation, and serves as a resource for lifelong learning. Donations are needed to help us secure the programming that is offered to a wide range of individuals to enrich, enhance, and expand the intellectual and cultural life of Skidmore College and the local region.
Your unrestricted donation supports our ability to introduce the community to the latest educational and artistic ventures, providing support for:
- Artistic Innovation
- New Technology
- Visiting Artists
- Lectures and Residencies
We invite you to invest in the teaching and learning that takes place at Skidmore through the Office of the Dean of Special Programs, a truly innovative unit of the College. Your tax deductible donation, large or small, helps us make a difference. All gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
