APS Community Reading Program

APS Community Reading Program

The Academic Planning Seminar (APS) Community Reading Program is all about connecting our students to the community through storytelling. 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 2022 Community Reading Program theme is Storytelling.


As part of the Academic Planning Seminar classes (GEP100, 120, 125; HON112; DCC100), we have asked our incoming first-year students to read and respond to a few readings from our chosen book – “Callings – The Purpose and Passion of Work” by Dave Isay.

The Storytelling Project

Through various platforms, we will be sharing stories of community, perseverance, and passion. We will collaborate with our faculty, staff, students, alum, and local community to present a series of events 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 of this project is to learn, grow, and connect to the Brockport community through shared experiences.
