Marc C. Conner Named Eighth President of Skidmore College

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Marc C. Conner, provost of Washington and Lee University, innovative leader of interdisciplinary academic programs and longtime advocate of diversity and inclusion, has been named the eighth president of Skidmore College. His term begins July 1, 2020. “I have deep respect for what Skidmore has achieved as a model of an excellent liberal arts education, and I am tremendously excited to be part of its future,” Conner said. Conner, a widely published professor of English, has served as provost of Washington and Lee University, a private liberal arts university in Lexington, VA, since Jan. 2016. As Washington and Lee’s chief academic officer, he has led the university in reaffirmation of its accreditation, co-chaired its strategic planning process and overseen the revitalization of its law school. “I'm eager to sit down with the Skidmore community, roll up our sleeves and continue Skidmore’s tradition of academic excellence, collaboration and creativity.” Conner will succeed Philip Glotzbach, who will retire at the end of June 2020.
