Spring 2021 Commitment to Communication
Ongoing and enhanced communication with the entire Skidmore campus community of students, faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees and our students’ parents and families will be crucial during the process of returning to campus.
The College will continue to provide updates in all areas of the spring planning process, including new guidance on health and safety requirements and new information about student residential life.
- In a video message, President Marc Conner extends a warm welcome to faculty, staff and students to a new semester on Skidmore’s beautiful campus, while also emphasizing the need for heightened vigilance to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- We are now within two weeks of having our students back on campus, and although the vaccine progress is encouraging, it is clear that it will be months before vaccinations are sufficiently widespread to make a palpable difference in living with the pandemic.
- Plans and requirements to welcome students back to campus for spring 2021 are in place to help ensure the health and safety of the Skidmore community.
- We are now more than halfway through the fall semester and our collegewide efforts to comply with weekly testing protocols, follow all health and safety guidelines, and make responsible choices continue to put us in a strong position to manage and contain COVID-19 cases on campus.
