One Book, One College


Purpose: To plan and execute the One Book, One College program. One Book, One College’s goal is to foster interdisciplinary relationships, and a sense of community through a shared reading experience. This is accomplished by selecting a theme for the year, selecting a book to follow the theme, create and implement events based on the theme, encourage reading of the book, and encourage faculty incorporation of the book into the classroom.
