Where can I find detailed information on OSDP programs and workshops?

Each semester OSDP and its affiliate clubs and organizations offer a variety of events, programs and workshops. Students are encouraged to check out the monthly OSDP posters, OSDP website and Facebook Page for more information. 

How does the ICC Library Program work?

OSDP oversees the ICC Library.  Thanks to funding from SGA and donations, the ICC has a library of books and DVD’s that can be checked out.  Students, Staff, or Faculty who want to check out materials from the library must have a valid Skidmore ID and will need to return the materials within two week.

The ICC has also collected a number of textbooks through donations. Often times these text books can be used in current courses. Students are welcome to stop by the ICC to browse the book collection. Students who want to check out textbooks from the library must have a valid student ID and will need to return the book(s) at the end of the semester.

You can also donate books to the ICC - what else will you do with your unsold textbooks?

Is OSDP exclusive to people of color?

Although OSDP aims to provide support for students of color and students of various sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions, OSDP programs and services are opened to all undergraduate students at Skidmore College.

What resources are available if I have experienced a racially, culturally, sexually, gender or safety related bias incident or hate crime on campus?
