Skidmore Student Affairs Mission Statement
In support of the College’s mission, “to educate a diverse population of talented students,” the Division of Student Affairs works collaboratively with all College departments to create an inclusive and integrated educational experience.
We all learn from and teach each other best in a diverse and inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity to participate fully and has equitable access to the highest levels of excellence in education. Thus we believe:
- Learning happens everywhere and requires victories, challenges, disappointments, and defeats.
- Learning is a dynamic, inclusive and integrative process of exploration across barriers and opportunities.
- Learning happens in all dimensions: intellectual, emotional, physical, social, professional, and spiritual.
- Learning promotes growth, transformation, and the continuous interaction and meaning making of self, other, and community.
Career Development Center Mission Statement
Skidmore's Career Development Center is committed to supporting all students and alumni through the creative process of integrating their liberal arts education and experiences into a satisfying career. In keeping with the College's founding principle of linking theoretical with applied learning, we help students and alumni develop self-knowledge, cultivate partnerships on and off-campus, prepare for experiential opportunities—such as internships, collaborative research, and community involvement—and manage their careers proactively. We encourage students to build skills and participate in engaged liberal learning practices early in their Skidmore experience, and we offer guidance to both students and alumni in forging meaningful careers for a world of rapid change.
