First-Year Experience in London

Each fall two faculty members have the opportunity to serve as on-site directors of Skidmore’s First-Year Experience in London program. Each faculty director teaches a Scribner Seminar, developed for the program and specific to London; students take additional Skidmore-specific courses at the IES London Center. Faculty interested in serving as the director of Skidmore’s First-Year Experience in London should review the program proposal guidelines (available on the OCSE website) and should notify the Director of Off-Campus Study & Exchanges. OCSE typically announces available FYE in London program opportunities two years in advance of the program dates. Appointments are made after consultation and review by the Director of OCSE, the Director of the First-Year Experience, the Office of the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs, and the appropriate department chair(s).
