About the Master Planning Process 

Zankel Music Center

The Master Planning process offered an opportunity to critically, and collaboratively, assess the state of Skidmore's campus and the many projects that have been proposed, planned and framed in recent years, with an eye toward freshly evaluating those projects and determining how they fit into current and emerging strategic priorities, needs and aspirations. 

The College examined potential future projects in academic affairs and student and residential life, to see what curricular needs might help structure future building projects.

Sustainability, diversity and inclusion, and access informed each decision, and the process involved the entire Skidmore community — students, staff, faculty, as well as the Saratoga Springs community — in order to clearly identify and articulate the highest needs of the College in this future-oriented planning.
