A decade of accomplishment under the Glotzbach presidency

A decade ago, Philip Glotzbach and wife marie headed out on a cross-country drive from Redlands, Calif., to Saratoga Springs, New York. They stopped along the way to visit with family and friends and talk over the new post that awaited: the presidency of Skidmore College. The closer they drew to New York, the more optimistic they became about possibilities that lay ahead. As Phil Glotzbach recalls, "We had been impressed by Skidmore's focus on creativity, its welcoming community, and especially its forward-looking nature." But even they could not have forseen how dramatically the college would change in his first decade as its seventh leader.
