The WVU Campus Read
WVU's Campus Read program (formerly the "Common Read") is creating a community of learners by engaging students, faculty, staff and the Morgantown area in an academically-driven common reading experience.
Why It Matters
The Campus Read fosters an exchange of ideas and critical thinking through thoughtful dialogue. Make new connections and talk about important ideas with other Mountaineers.
The Campus Read is a voluntary program, and the book has been adopted by faculty in many courses across campus enabling them to explore themes in the book within their disciplines. The campus and community are invited to participate in a series of events throughout the year discussing themes of race, poverty, justice, mental illness, capital punishment, and women and children in jail.
Are you incorporating the Campus Read into a class, event, discussion or other activity? If so, let us know what your plans are and how we can help.
