Why A Book-in-Common?
The Book-in-Common program is a university-wide initiative developed to foster a learning environment focused on the success of students to live, work, and lead in a diverse and complex world. The program will promote an awareness and appreciation for the richness that is brought by embracing all forms of diversity and multicultural perspectives. In addition, it supports University initiatives such as curricular and co-curricular efforts in Global Connections, Wellness Connections, and Business Connections.
