- Welcome to another exciting academic year. To the 685 students of the Class of 2022, welcome to Skidmore! To returning staff, students and faculty, I trust your summer was filled with adventures and new experiences. It has been a busy summer, and we have a great deal of news to share to those who are new and those who are continuing their relationship with the College.
- As midterm elections approach, we are entering into a concentrated season of both political activity and related communications. We have witnessed strong opinions on display throughout recent years — both here on campus and on the national stage — and anticipate that this activity will intensify in the weeks to come.
- I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Donna Ng as Skidmore’s next vice president for finance and administration and treasurer, effective October 1.
