APS Community Reading Program

The Academic Planning Seminar (APS) Community Reading Program is designed to support your transition to Brockport and the broader community. It will introduce you to college level learning and challenge you to consider new perspectives and world views. Investing your time and energy in this program will help you establish a strong foundation for a successful future in the classroom and in the Brockport community.

The 2020 Reading Theme

The 2020 Community Reading theme is Storytelling. Through various platforms, we will be sharing stories of community, perseverance, advocacy, and passion. We will also collaborate with our faculty, staff, students, alum, and local community to present a series of our own stories that will help you connect to campus and consider new perspectives.

You will have the opportunity to not only listen and learn, but also share in whatever way you feel comfortable. The goal is learning, growing, and connecting to the Brockport community through shared experiences. The Community Reading program is your kick off to college-level learning and it all starts with the summer assignment!
