The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is excited to announce the expansion of the One Book initiative to "Beyond the Book" The Diversity Campus Reading Circle.
This program is focused on embracing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) by exploring four themes with four different books at the campus-wide level:
Theme 1 - Gender & Self-Identity:
We Should All be Feminists
by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Theme 2 - Global & Cultural Perspectives:
From Here to Eternity: Traveling the World to Find the Good Death
by Caitlin Doughty
Theme 3 - Accessibility & Advocacy:
The Sun Does Shine
by Anthony Ray Hinton
Theme 4 - Diversity & Racial Equity:
by Tommy Orange
The purpose of Beyond the Book is to expand the dialogues, learning and engagement around diversity, equity, and inclusion themed books to foster a greater sense of community all while celebrating difference. This program is designed to provide an enjoyable and positive reading experience both inside and outside of the classroom. The aim of the Diversity Campus Reading Circles is to engage students, faculty, staff, and the larger community in a wide range of social discussion around DEI themes and intellectual activities to create an inclusive campus community.
