The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is an opportunity for students to fully engage in a hands-on educational experience of scholarship, research, and creative activity with a faculty mentor. The program provides fellowships to support students with on-campus housing and a stipend for full or part time effort for up to 8 weeks. Students are required to attend an orientation session, to complete weekly reflective journals describing their experience, and to present their research during an end-of-summer session as well as at Scholars Day in the spring semester. Students that are on campus are required to attend a weekly workshop series that is provided to develop useful skills for the future.
Now is the time to speak with potential faculty mentors! The program application forms will be available February 1.

Service Learning is a credit-bearing teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience and strengthen communities. Further, at The College at Brockport, we believe the following elements are essential for any service learning experience: 1. Student activity that demonstrates civic responsibility 2. Student reflection activity on the impact of meaningful community service; 3. Faculty or student activity that develops relationships with community partners Service-learning is considered to be a High-Impact Educational Practice and has been shown to increase student engagement and success.
Brockport’s service learning programs continue to grow. Brockport has climbed to #5 among SUNY’s comprehensive colleges in the percentage of students who report having been involved in Community Service or Service Learning as part of a course or academic program (improving from #10 in 2009 and #8 in 2012). Source: Student Opinion Survey, 2015 The Service Learning Grant was established in the fall semester of 2012 by the IEL to encourage even more faculty to incorporate new service-learning opportunities for students into their courses. The Grant of up to $500 can be used to assist with related expenses, including transportation, supplies, permits, food (if service extends over a meal period), educational resources, registrations, entry fees or similar expenses. Previous recipients: please note that we are now accepting applications for courses that have previously received the grant. First preference will still go to the addition of new opportunities, but previous recipients may certainly still apply and receive funding.
The application deadline for Fall is April 20th and the deadline for Spring is November 20th.
