Faculty Recommendation Form
The faculty charge to Honors Council is to administer a program for under ten percent of the student population (of roughly 180-200 members) with a GPA that places them in the top ranking of all Skidmore students. Honors Forum membership is not an entitlement for students, even those with the qualifying GPA. Membership selection is competitive. Therefore, we ask faculty members to help us discern the students who they believe will play a significant role in enhancing the academic life at Skidmore. A full recommendation with specifics or even anecdotes about the student is more helpful to the Honors Council than a brief response of only a few sentences.
