Campus-Wide Reading Program

Trade books assigned in first-year and campus-wide reading programs are increasingly popular. They pull students and teachers together and build student skills in critical thinking. Campus-wide books build community on campus by allowing students and teachers to share their own experiences. Hundreds of towns and cities now run “One City, One Book” programs for the same reason, to spark intellectual exchange and bring their citizens together, but colleges were the first to take this idea and make it work.
