There, Dr. Skipton was elected to the University's Faculty Senate for eight years, served five as chief delegate for the College of Business, and was elected twice as Faculty Senate Vice President.

In 1999 and 2000, Dr. Skipton served as a staff economist for the Joint Economic Committee for the United States Congress doing research on topics such as social security privatization, tax policy, and the impact of trade restrictions (and economic freedom, generally) on long-run economic growth.
