Social Work Connects to the Community
The Social Work Department works closely with the Saratoga Vital Aging Network and the Saratoga Springs Senior Center on events that bring the community’s elders together with Skidmore students. One such project is our intergenerational interviews that are part of SW 253: Human Behavior and the Social Environment. Elders come to campus to be interviewed by our students on their life history. This year, not only will our students interview older community members, the elders will return to campus later in the semester to interview them about issues related to emerging adulthood.
