Office of Student Diversity Programs Library
Made possible through donations from Student Government Association, the Office of Student Diversity Programs has numerous books and DVD's that can be borrowed free of charge. The library is located in the Intercultural Lounge (Case 225). Students, staff and faculty must have a valid Skidmore ID to check out library materials and will need to return them within two weeks.

Project Unity
Created in the Spring of 2007, Project Unity is a civic and social forum for Skidmore's students of color, students of various sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions, international students, and their allies. The goal of the program is to promote the creation of an inter-group alliance and, in turn, help form a clear, strong and unified voice for all "minority" students at Skidmore College. Project Unity also aims to address students' sense of campus-belonging by establishing a supportive "home-base" at the College. For more information, please email

OSDP works closely with Student Government through CODA.  The Committee is primarily concerned with institutional policy issues. It also addresses relevant club affairs, coordinates programs aimed at educating the campus and facilitates dialogue on diversity. Contact Eric Beriguete '15, SGA Vice President for Diversity Affairs.
