One of the most gratifying experiences of being a Skidmore alumna/us is the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of one of our own. The Alumni Association Board of Directors actively seeks to identify alumni who deserve to be recognized for their achievements. If you know a Skidmore alumna/us who meets the criteria for one of these awards (see below), we’d like to hear from you.
