Join the Conversation

WVU's Campus Read engages all its campuses and communities in a common reading experience, which fosters dialog, critical thinking and community participation.

Talk about the book at one of our events

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 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 segregation, sex discrimination, women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), the race into space, the power of education, and West Virginians who have made a significant contribution to society. 

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.
