Carr Distinguished Interdisciplinary Lecture Series

The purpose of this residency is to more intentionally prepare Skidmore students for the transition from college to the working world or to further studies.  Broadly conceived, this residency integrates and leverages resources across academic departments and programs and administrative offices to address the issue of post-baccalaureate transition and to heighten community awareness about the post-Skidmore lives of our alumni. The community will interact with influential leaders and professionals, including policy-makers, government officials, and business leaders, who are on the cutting edge of social issues, non-profit and public service innovations, and social responsibility.  This residency is funded by Robert and Jill Carr, parents of Kelly '07.


The Office of Special Programs is pleased to issue a call for proposals for the Fall 2016 Carr Residency.
