The Scholars Leadership Forum is a non-credit cooperative of students and faculty who create and implement projects and organize events that enrich the intellectual and cultural climate of the campus.

The fest is part of the “Healing Our City Through Expressive Arts,” which is a joint venture of the School of Education and Human Development at Binghamton University and the Mental Health Association (MHA) of the Southern Tier. The project is funded by a grant from the Marilyn Gaddis Rose and Stephen David Ross University and Community Projects Fund. The fund, which was established in 1998 by Binghamton University faculty members Rose and Ross, provides money for creative and innovative cooperative efforts between the University and local non-profit organizations.
