The University community is invited to participate in SACAD Activities.  Undergraduate, Graduate, and KAMS students, and all University Faculty and Staff are encouraged to celebrate FHSU research, scholarly, and creative activities.

The awards are made possible thanks to a generous gift to the FHSU Foundation in memory of Dr. John Heinrichs, who worked tirelessly to expand research opportunities for FHSU students and faculty.  The John Heinrichs Scholarly and Creative Activities Day is sponsored by the Scholarship Environment Committee, the offices of the provost and the deans, and the Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects.

 Faculty are encouraged to consider using SACAD to provide out-of-the-classroom opportunities to engage students. Here are a few ways to integrate SACAD into the classroom experience:

  1. Encourage students to present creative works in the form of projects, recitals, plays, performances, demonstrations, presentations, etc. for in-class credit.
  2. Provide extra credit or other incentives for attending relevant activities, writing articles for publication, creating web communications, or taking photos/film clips of SACAD events. 
  3. Allow students to write reactions to present in class, or hold a class discussion of ideas and inspirations.
  4. Require students to attend SACAD events in lieu of class time. 

The SACAD Committee welcomes suggestions for future activities.  Contact Leslie Paige with questions or suggestions.
