The College Seal

The Skidmore College seal is the official academic logotype of the College. Where the wordmark is used for general institutional identification, the college seal is reserved for specific uses, generally those of an academic nature. These uses include the Skidmore College Catalog and materials related to Opening Convocation, Honors Convocation, Commencement, endowed lectures, and the Alumni Recognition Ceremony.

The Skidmore College seal is designed to be used "as is"; the proportions should never be altered. The seal can be reduced or enlarged as long as the proportions remain the same. Because use of the seal is restricted, it is not available on the website for downloading.

Copies of the seal are available in camera-ready and digital formats from the Office of Communications and Marketing. Contact the vice president of communications and marketing at 518-580-5733.
