Common Book Suggestions

All University community members are invited to make a suggestion for the common book selection. A variety of factors including cost, readability, length, and applicability to our student population are taken into consideration. The Common Book Committee will review each submission prior to making their final selection.

The student learning outcomes for the Common Book 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.
