Named in honor of Wilma (Billie) Stein Tisch, distinguished alumna of the Skidmore Class of 1948, and Laurence A. Tisch, the Tisch Chair in Arts and Letters recognizes and celebrates Skidmore’s renown in arts and letters (covering departments in the humanities and performing and studio arts). Occupants of the Tisch Chair will be selected from nominations contributed by members of the Skidmore community and will represent the Skidmore faculty’s excellence in teaching, scholarship, and creativity. Appointed by the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs, in consultation with the Committee on Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure, the Department, and, when applicable, the Program concerned, holders of the Tisch Chair in Arts and Letters will normally serve in this position for a period of ten years and will represent the institution both internally and externally as distinguished faculty and ambassadors to the larger intellectual community.
