We envision a campus that is busy, vibrant, and exciting every day, year-round.
The Office of the Dean of Special Programs enriches the College’s core mission year-round by vigorously seeking, creating, and implementing innovative educational and cultural experiences to engage and stimulate diverse populations.
Special Programs presents a distinctive array of academic programs, art institutes, lecture series, artist/scholar residences, and community programs that contribute to Skidmore’s unique position among liberal arts colleges as a place for academic experimentation and cutting-edge artistic creation and development. Everything we present shares a spirit of innovation, broad access, serious educational endeavor, and fun.
As host to many outside conferences and events, Special Programs welcomes those whose missions are consistent with ours and who will thrive in our community.
