Preparing Socially Responsible Graduates for Complexity, 多样性 和 Change
斯基德莫尔大学 is committed to integrative learning as a means to prepare students to be socially responsible citizens in a complex world characterized by diversity 和不断变化. Integrative learning happens across disciplinary boundaries, over time as one progresses through a Skidmore education, through connecting curricular 和 co-curricular experiences, 和 across the border between the campus 和 the broader 世界.
Skidmore students engage in integrative learning from their very first semester at Skidmore via their first-year seminar, where they consider a topic through an interdisciplinary 镜头. Campus partners such as the 唐教学博物馆 和 斯克里布纳尔出版社图书馆 provide opportunities for students to make connections: cultivate a breadth 和 depth of knowledge; connect theory to practice; acquire transferable intellectual 和 practical skills; 和 develop self-awareness.
Integrative learning will be bolstered through Skidmore’s Center for Integrated Sciences (CIS), a state-of-the art transformational learning space. 中心，它的第一个 phase was completed in 2020 和 is now open, is designed as a hub where unique interdisciplinary connections between 和 among the sciences, arts, humanities 和 social sciences can be cultivated through a general education curriculum, delivery of majors, minors 和 programs, 和 opportunities for collaborative research 和 creative work across disciplines.
