Brockport, NY – For 26 years, Scholars Day at The College at Brockport, State University of New York has focused the spotlight on the academic and creative accomplishments of the College’s best and the brightest.
Scholars Day 2009 featured presentations of research and creative work by more than 400 students, faculty, and staff, on Wednesday (April 15) on the Brockport campus and at The College at Brockport MetroCenter, 55 St. Paul St.
Scholars Day is intended to: 1) publicize research, 2) share new ideas and concepts, 3) expand knowledge, 4) and provide an opportunity to socialize with members of the campus community outside of one’s own department.
This year, more than 225 presentations highlighted work done over the previous year in each of the College’s academic departments.
Sample presentation topics include: printmaking in a steamroller press, the interactive sundial, the subprime mortgage crisis, talks and demonstrations of ballet, hip-hop and activist art, working with autistic children, limits of executive power, treatment of Guantanamo detainees, and computer modeling of atmospheric pollution.
A complete schedule with a detailed description of Scholars Day presentations and events is available online at www.brockport.edu/scholarsday.
