What is Broncos Read?

Broncos Read is a University Library-driven initiative to honor faculty, staff, and students 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 University Library will also put copies of the posters on display both physically and digitally.


All current students, staff, and faculty can nominate SCU members that they believe have contributed to the University. In 250 words or less, tell us why we should honor your nominee in a Broncos Read poster. Be sure to explain any work or project the nominee is involved with that furthers the University's mission and/or how the nominee embodies Conscience, Competence, and Compassion. There is no limit on the number of nominations an individual can make.
