Programs and Services

Office of Student Diversity Programs library
Made possible through donations from Student Government Association, the Office of Student Diversity Programs has numerous books and DVDs that can be borrowed free of charge. The library is located in the Intercultural Center (Case 208). Students, staff and faculty must have a valid Skidmore ID to check out library materials and will need to return them within two weeks.

SGA Committee on Inclusion and Outreach
OSDP works closely with the Student Government Association through the Committee on Inclusion and Outreach. The committee is primarily concerned with institutional policy issues. It also addresses relevant club affairs and coordinates programs aimed at educating the campus and facilitates dialogue on diversity.

OSDP Peer Mentor Program
The OSDP Mentor Program is for students of color, students who identify as LGBTQ+, international students, and students who have these intersecting identities here at Skidmore College. This program focuses on providing experiences, information, and resources related to student success at Skidmore and beyond. OSDP Peer Mentors (upperclass Skidmore students) and Mentees (first-year Skidmore students) will engage in a variety of activities focused on assisting first-year students in their transition to college and helping current Skidmore students with further developing their leadership skills.
