The goals of US 1100 for the Summer Reading Program are there-fold:

  • To create a "Common Academic Experience" for all new students,
  • To enhance students' participation in the intellectual life of the campus through discussion and critical thinking on a current topic, and
  • To enhance a sense of community among students, faculty and staff

The Summer Reading Program initiative has the strong support of the University Seminar office, US 1100 group leaders and Dr. Ron Brown, Dean of University College. US 1100 course fees have purchased 7,500 copies of the book to support the program. As many departments and offices of the university as possible are invited to participate in the Common Experience.
