Interview with Sandy Welter
Sandra Welter began at Skidmore in 1968 as a teacher in the University Without Walls (UWW) program at the Washington County Correctional Facility. She later became a full-time advisor for that program and finally its Director until the program closed in 1998 due to a lack of NY State funding. She then advised in the regular UWW program and, in 1997, in the MALS graduate program. She also taught writing in the Skidmore program at the University of Qufu in China in 2000-2001, as well as in the English Department on campus. She taught ESL to foreign students and worked in the Summer Institute with Higher Education Opportunity students. In addition to her work with these various programs, she discusses in this interview the transition to the new campus and changes in campus life as men matriculated. Before retiring in 2017, Welter had experienced the college under Presidents Palamaountain, Porter, Studley, and Glotzbach.
