Skidmore College EEO and Diversity
Collaboration, mutual support, trust and respect are the hallmarks of Skidmore College. We celebrate what connects us and what makes us different, and we are always striving to create a more diverse, inclusive and welcoming liberal arts experience. When we have a plurality of voices at the table and everyone is learning from each other, our community grows stronger.President MARC C. CONNER
Our employment efforts are designed to identify the broadest possible field of candidates by casting a wide net that will bring strong talent to our campus. Good work has begun; however, we are far from our desired outcome. We will recruit and hire committed and concerned professionals who share the vision of diversity as a fundamental platform for a challenging, desirable place of employment and a positive learning environment.
Skidmore College is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive community in which members develop their abilities tolive in a complex and interconnected world. Consistent with our educational mission, we recognize ourselves as a community that respects individual identities based on varying sociocultural characteristics, such as race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, national origin, first language, religious and spiritual tradition, age, ability, socioeconomic status and learning style. We strive to create a socially just world that honors the dignity and worth of each individual, and we seek to build a community centered on mutual respect and openness to ideas—one in which individuals value cultural and intellectual diversity and share the responsibility for creating a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment. We recognize that our community is most inclusive when all members participate to their full capacity in the spirited, and sometimes challenging, conversations that are at the center of the college’s educational mission.
