Reading Together, Building Connections, Strengthening Our College Community
When you read books, they bring you to different places, they change you, by opening up different experiences and thoughts. That’s what educates you.” – Cathy Germano, Director of Learning Services
Excelsior College’s Common Read program invites students, alumni, faculty, and staff to participate in a shared reading experience that engages our community to better understand topics such as diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice through many perspectives.
The book for the current Common Read is “My Time Among The Whites” by Jennine Capó Crucet.
You can purchase “My Time Among The Whites” at Excelsior’s online bookstore.
Watch the author discuss some of the challenges of being a first-generation college student.
