Board of Trustees

Reflections in Haupt Pond

The Skidmore College Board of Trustees has authorized seats for 35 voting members, 31 of whom are elected by the trustees themselves upon the recommendation of the Trusteeship Committee. Four members are elected in conjunction with the Skidmore College Alumni Association. The president of the College and the president of the alumni association are ex-officio members. Each elected member serves a four-year term, except for Young Alumni Trustees, who serve two-year terms. Officers are elected each year; new terms begin June 1. Emeritus status is conferred upon eligible retired members by vote of the board. The full board typically meets in October, February, and May each year. Specific committees may meet throughout the year as necessary.

The responsibilities of the board are met through the action and recommendation of the standing committees. These include the Executive, Academic Affairs, Trusteeship, and Audit committees. Other committees cover investment, budget and finance, infrastructure, special programs, advancement and communities, strategic planning, and student life and admissions.

Candidates for trusteeship usually come from among the alumni, parents, and friends of Skidmore who have demonstrated their commitment to the College's goals through interest in and support of the institution and its programs.
