One Saturday in October, 2007, virtually all of Skidmore's tenure-track professors—55 in all —gathered in the Murray-Aikins Dining Hall to participate in a daylong retreat focused on planning the second phase of a focused initiative to strengthen the natural sciences at Skidmore and enhance the science literacy of all Skidmore students. Among the key questions on which they focused: What vision of the sciences at Skidmore do we have for 2018?
To capture the main points of this campuswide discussion, Scope invited four of the College's younger science faculty members to share their views: Michelle Frey, assistant professor, chemistry; Corey Freeman-Gallant, associate professor and department chair, biology; Hassan Lopez, assistant professor, psychology; and Paul Arciero, associate professor, exercise science.
