Teacher's Day

Each year, the Department of History hosts a Teachers' Day. This event brings together dozens of high school history teachers from across the region to hear Geneseo faculty members review scholarly trends in U.S. and global history.

Please save the date for next year's Teacher's Day: (tentatively set for) Friday, March 3, 2023. We plan to have workshops, a luncheon, and an afternoon panel discussion. All will be in-person on our campus. In January, we will share registration information and more details about the day's events.

In March 2017, Professors Joseph Cope and Justin Behrend, and Geneseo alum and Geneseo CSD teacher Sarah Prinzi, appeared on WXXI’s radio show “Connections with Evan Dawson” to discuss Teachers’ Day and our department’s other outreach programs. You can stream the episode or find links to podcasts for download at the Connections website.

As a department, we gratefully acknowledge the financial support of former teachers and Geneseo alumni Joe ’67 and Elaine ’66 Bucci, without whose help the Teachers’ Day events would not be possible.
