Skidmore College Employee Handbook for Staff

Welcome Statement

Skidmore College is committed to the faculty and staff who work here in passionate support of our students.  We deeply desire a workplace culture that encourages an appreciation of one another - seeking value in each community member's unique strengths and contributions.  We aim for a climate that is positive and energized to meet the needs of our roles, our departments, our colleagues and our students.

To reach and maintain a culture like this is determined not by the College, or the administration, but by each of us.  At its fundamental level, it is as simple as how we value and therefore, respond to each other as co-workers and colleagues, how we conduct ourselves in our language and behavior, how we commit to doing our jobs, as individuals or in teams, as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Whatever your role or job title, whatever your background and experience, we trust you will partner together in helping make Skidmore a vibrant place to learn and grow, for our students, as well as a professionally satisfying and personally fulfilling place to work.  

Welcome to Skidmore College! We are pleased you are here.
