All staff who, in their various ways, support the educational mission of the College are eligible to join either as Associate or Voting (fee-paying) members. The latter's subscription is $60 per semester, for which members receive discounts at all ticketed events during the year.

The SCR runs a year-long program of events, including: 

  • the SCR Garden party, held on the first Wednesday of February

  • dinners and other communal dining opportunities

  • brown-bag lunchtime research seminars, held on a designated Friday each month

  • a winery visit in April
