The mission of the Office of Student Creative Activity and Research is to promote and support student scholarly activity and creative work across the Fredonia campus. Such an endeavor is integral to the teaching and learning experience. It provides an opportunity for students to become closely affiliated with a faculty mentor and to develop skills and knowledge that will benefit them in the future. Clearly, both students and faculty benefit from such activity, and therefore it is important that the institution make a concerted effort to promote such collaborations
The OSCAR office opened in 2006 as part of Fredonia’s efforts to institutionalize undergraduate research. The office is part of Academic Affairs and its mission is to promote and provide students with a variety of research, scholarly, and creative opportunities in all academic disciplines. The office is led by Dr. Jack Croxton and housed in the Department of Psychology is Thompson Hall. Activities coordinated by the office include a the annual Student Research and Creativity Exposition, funding to support travel for students presenting/performing at professional meetings and conferences.
