We also send heartfelt thanks to outgoing President Philip Glotzbach and his wife, Marie, for all they have done for the College and for retirees in particular during the past 17 years. We will remember them fondly and wish them all the best in the next stage of what will surely continue to be productive careers.

The retiree discussion group on race and racism, coordinated by Sarah Goodwin, invites all retirees to a presentation based on a cultural analysis of diversity related tensions and conflicts in three liberal arts colleges in the northeast United States, including Skidmore.  Pushi Prasad, the Zankel Chair in Management for Liberal Arts Students at Skidmore, will describe three “storylines” that she and her fellow researchers identified; point to the conflicts they engender; and explore options for future dialogue and resolution.

Registration is required.  After registering, you will receive Zoom log-on information.  For questions about the program, contact Sarah Goodwin sgoodwin@skidmore.edu
