Common Reading Program

Recommend a Book


All University community members are invited to make a suggestion for the common reading book selection. A variety of factors including cost, readability, length, and applicability to our student population are taken into consideration before a final selection is made. The student learning outcomes for the Common Reading Program are as follows:

  • Model intellectual engagement by participating in a shared academic experience within the first year seminar
  • Create a sense of community
  • Demonstrate an understanding of diverse perspectives by exploring the distinct and/or common qualities in one’s own perspectives and those of others.
  • Develop interest in reading and textual exploration.
