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:
This is our 26th 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 2009 will have 227 presentations/poster sessions made by a total of 409 students/faculty/staff (355 students and 54 faculty/staff) with an additional 65 faculty/staff participating as sessions chairs but not presenting. An impressive growth!
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.
