Skidmore College
Civic Engagement

A liberal arts education certainly represents a personal good for our graduates, preparing them not only to make a living but also to create a life worth living—a life that truly matters for themselves and others. But a Skidmore education also represents a broader social good that is seldom remarked upon in contemporary discussions of higher education. We highlight this value in our expressed determination to prepare our graduates to live as informed, responsible, and globally and interculturally aware citizens who are not only capable of bringing their personal plans to fruition but who also strive to make the world a better place for all.
