Keeping in Touch

Haupt Pond in the summerThere are many easy ways you can keep in touch with what's happening at Skidmore and with what's happening with other retirees.


Current events sponsored by the Retiree Initiative Group are displayed on the right hand side of the Retiree home page, as well as below in the Retiree Event page. Information about registration is provided in the event descriptions.

Alumni events can be found here.

You can also check out the entire list of Skidmore-sponsored events here.


Catch up with what’s going on by reading the online Scope Monthly, or connect with the Retiree Initiative Group.

Keeping your Skidmore email name when you retire ensures your access to online directories and certain library resources, and automatically includes your name on the retiree list that HR maintains. However if you prefer to adopt a new email address, please don’t drop out of sight! Register your current email address with HR by clicking the link below or using the button on the Retiree homepage. You may choose to keep your Skidmore email name active and redirect your Skidmore email messages to your new address using the instructions below.

Please note: Spouses/partners of deceased retirees remain valued members of the Skidmore family, but they need to report their personal email address in order for the college to stay in touch with them.  Please send your email address if this applies to you, and encourage your friends to do the same


On a more personal level, keep up with other retirees through the "People" links. You can use the Retiree and the Faculty/Staff directories to find contact information, using your Skidmore user name for authentication, or you can read recent news items relating to Retirees. Please feel free to share a new item for inclusion by clicking on the "Submit Items to the Website" button at the top of the Retiree Home Page. The In Memoriam link will lead you to a searchable listing of the In Memoriam Archives. Listen to friends and colleagues share their memories of Skidmore in the Retiree Oral History Project.
