Engaging Together, Through a Common Read
The UM-Dearborn Community Read is a campus initiative to instill a joy of learning, critical thinking, interdisciplinary collaboration, and engagement within our community - by coming together through a common, campus read.
The 2020-21 Community Read is How to be an Antiracist.
Incorporation of the Community Read into course curricula across campus creates common intellectual experiences for students University-wide. The campus Community Read was selected by the Faculty Senate's First Year Experience Committee. The selected text is engaging to read and is interdisciplinary in nature, allowing faculty from all disciplines to include it in this year's courses and assisting students in seeing how learning in various classes blends together for a more comprehensive outlook.
