Warm greetings from the Office of the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs! We look forward to supporting our faculty and staff this semester as we work collectively to deliver a top-notch liberal education to our bright and creative students. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the institution in my new interim role with the ultimate goal of facilitating a smooth transition for Michael Orr, our incoming dean of the faculty and vice president for academic affairs. Over the course of the semester, I will regularly use Skidmore Weekly Bulletin to provide updates from Academic Affairs. Best wishes for a healthy and productive spring semester!
