CREATING PATHWAYS TO EXCELLENCE:
THE PLAN FOR SKIDMORE COLLEGE 2015–2025
Guided by this Strategic Plan, the Skidmore community will strive to cultivate creativity in service of integrative learning, inclusive excellence, access, well-being, and sustainability. In pointing the way for the College to achieve the goals identified above, this Plan represents the convergence of our aspirations and the imperative to push the boundaries of creativity and imagination. These goals set out a 10-year vision for the College. During this time, additional action steps will be identified as part of our ongoing institutional strategic thinking—especially in the process of developing annual Action Agendas (a practice that was integral to the success of the previous Plan), as well as in a formal review at the five-year midpoint. But at the heart of this work stands our ongoing commitment to the values of liberal education that animate our mission, to the specific values of creative thought and inclusive excellence, and above all to the success of our students.
