New master’s director

Dan Coleman recently arrived to lead Skidmore’s external master’s program in liberal studies. He replaces David Glaser, who took a teaching position in Thailand.
Coleman comes from Bennington College, where his roles included overseeing admissions materials and marketing for the office of communications. A faculty member in education, he also served as associate director of the Center for Creative Teaching, where he helped found an undergraduate and graduate-level teacher education program that was integrated into Bennington’s liberal arts curriculum. He worked with traditional and nontraditional students in designing their individualized curricula.
     A graduate of the University of Chicago, Coleman holds a doctorate in English language and literature from Cornell University.
     Seventy-four people have earned master of arts degrees in liberal studies since the MALS program began in 1992. This year’s enrollment is fifty-three students. —AW, SR
