About Scholars Day

What is Scholars Day?

Scholars Day is an annual celebration of the scholarship and creative activity at The College at Brockport. Faculty and staff present alongside undergraduate and graduate students, who experience academic enrichment and professional development by presenting their work to discriminating audiences. This signature campus event supports a culture of research and creative activity among its students and demonstrates to the broader community that academic excellence is a key goal of The College at Brockport.

Scholars Day enables students as well as faculty and staff to:

  • present scholarly and creative work
  • practice disciplinary techniques of public presentation
  • learn from fellow scholars and artists across the disciplines
  • engage with members of the college community in educationally meaningful events
  • support a college culture of intellectual initiative and academic excellence
