As students, staff and faculty prepare to gather together on campus for the start of the fall semester, all members of the Skidmore community must make a personal commitment to following all health and safety protocols.
The function of the Faculty Development Committee is:
to advise the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs on faculty
to initiate ideas for faculty growth and improvement, including programs to support
both scholarly and professional activity and the improvement of teaching;
to allocate such research funds as the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for
Academic Affairs shall designate for committee decision;
to represent the faculty on the award of pre-tenure paid research and sabbatical leaves
and to make recommendations on such leaves to the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President
for Academic Affairs; and
to select the annual Edwin Moseley Faculty Research Lecturer, the recipient of the
Ralph A. Ciancio Award for Excellence in Teaching, and the Phyllis A. Roth Faculty
Distinguished Service Award.
