Purpose of Quest

  • recognize students, faculty, and staff engaged in scholarly and creative activities at SUNY Oswego
  • encourage and share scholarly and creative efforts across disciplines
  • identify the faculty-led student research taking place on campus


We encourage any and all types of creative or scholarly presentations and activities to be made on Quest day. The length of individual presentations may be specified by the presenters. In addition to presentations, Quest will also showcase posters. A poster is any stand-alone presentation that requires a board for displaying visual materials with a space in front for the presenter. There is one deadline for all submissions.

Each department will submit Quest proposals though their Quest representative. For general questions, please email
