 The highlight of the John Heinrichs Scholarly and Creative Activities Day (SACAD) is the poster exhibit in the Memorial Union Ballroom. Over 100 posters will be on display from 8:00am-3:00pm.  Presenters will be available between 1:00 - 3:00 PM.   The Black and Gold Room will feature a student and faculty art exhibit.  The poster award ceremony and drawings for Door Prizes will begin at 3:00pm. 

 Doors open at 8:00am on Wednesday, April 26!  Bring your Tiger Card to swipe in!  Winning posters are available in the FHSU Scholars Repository.

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. To get some tips and tricks for successfully presenting, attend one or more of these events offered by Forsyth Library.  Watch a video of the the first presentation in this series, Win Over the Viewers, to learn about the requirements and expectations of the reviewers. 

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.
