Every year, Georgia Gwinnett College provides students with an entertaining and conclusive reading engagement program. This program helps emphasize how important reading is during the college experience. It can help form a sense of community among students, faculty, and staff and is vital to linking the classroom with out-of-classroom experiences. Many professors around the campus use the Common Reading Initiative (CRI) to introduce students to their curriculum and to offer extra credit opportunities in their individual classrooms. During the spring semester the author visits the campus to discuss their book and its impact on society.
The Office of Student Involvement and the Student Center will provide free books to the first 300 students. This year’s book is Thank You for Your Service by David Finkel. If you are interested in the CRI or have any questions regarding the program, contact Dr. Maria Arvelo Lumpkin, Director of Student Involvement and the Student Center at 678.407.5582 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
