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.
