Description

David Marcell, came to Skidmore as Director of the American Studies program in 1964 and became the College’s Provost in 1977. In this interview he describes early initiatives in interdisciplinary teaching and learning at the College, including a young faculty member’s experience of navigating a curriculum tightly defined by disciplinary boundaries.  Marcell paints a lively picture of the College’s culture and administrative structure throughout the 70’s and 80’s, including the “orange juice riots” and supportive collegial relations. Marcell also reflects on challenges the College faced as it constructed a new campus, navigated the changes created by coeducation, and closed its highly regarded nursing program.  After 10 years away, Marcell returned to Skidmore to work for several years in Advancement.
