Skidmore continuously strives to increase its diversity on campus. The Office of Student Diversity Programs promotes cross-cultural understanding and positive and supportive relationships to create an inclusive campus community. Although Skidmore students are often stereotyped as "rich white kids," that is a very much unfounded statement now. Yes, the majority of Skidmore students is white, but there are many differences in the Skidmore community in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and gender. The College is constantly striving to make Skidmore a more inclusive community.
Skidmore students are generally very accepting; however, the inclusion and relationships between minority groups and majority groups could certainly be better.
