Scholars Day 2008, Wednesday, April 9

What is Scholars Day?

The College at Brockport’s Scholars Day was instituted in 1984 through the efforts of the College Senate. Scholars Day has continued as a celebration of scholarly pursuits by the campus community.

Scholars Day has several purposes:

  • to publicize research, including methodologies and conclusions;
  • to share new ideas and concepts;
  • to expand knowledge;
  • to provide an opportunity to socialize with members of the campus community outside of one’s own department.

This is our 25th year of celebrating scholarship on our campus!
The first Scholars Day on April 24, 1984 had a total of 66 presentations and 6 poster sessions made by 66 faculty/staff (and no students).

Scholars Day 2008 will have a record 235 presentations/poster sessions made by 429 students and 27 faculty/staff with an additional 62 faculty/staff chairs of sessions (not presenting). An impressive growth!

Join us in celebrating student success on Wednesday,
April 9, 2008

Scholars Day presentations begin a 9 am and continue until 4:45 pm on the main Brockport campus. We are excited that for the fourth year we will also be sponsoring Scholars Night at our downtown MetroCenter from 6-7:30 pm that day. Classes are suspended during these times so that the entire campus community can participate.
