Office of Undergraduate Education WSU Common Reading

What is a Common Reading?

Topics from a single, carefully selected book for first-year students are featured in several classes in disciplines across the university, and in special events and presentations. Having a shared source for such topics provides a common ground for students and their professors, and stimulates discussions and learning.  The same topics also lend themselves to presentations in a lecture series, and to discussions between students and faculty within and beyond classrooms.
