What is Broncos Read?
Broncos Read is a University Library initiative to honor faculty, staff, students, and alumni who represent exceptional scholarship, achievements, and those who embody conscience, competence, and compassion. Similar to the ALA READ posters and Creighton University's National Library Week posters, the Broncos Read posters feature University members with their favorite book, newspaper, or other reading material in a place of their choice on campus.
Each year around National Library Week in April, the Broncos Read committee will produce a poster of a student, a student team or club, a faculty member, and a staff member. Honorees will have the opportunity to explain what their reading selection means to them and will be given a copy of their poster at a special "unveiling" reception. The posters on will be on display both physically at the Library, and digitally on the Library's website.
All SCU community members can nominate current students, student teams and groups, staff, and faculty to be considered for the award. Nominations generally open in February. In the application, you will tell us why we should honor your nominee in a Broncos Read poster by answering the following questions:
How does the nominee embody the 3 Cs: Conscience, Competence, and Compassion?
How does the nominee display a passion for reading?
