One Book, One College (OBOC) is a year-long, interdisciplinary program engaging the college community through the reading and discussion of a shared book. The program aims to promote literacy and build a community of educated and empowered readers.
The book for One Book, One College is chosen each year by a group of faculty, staff, and students. The fall 2017 - fall 2019 selected is Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn.
Throughout the fall and spring semesters, the college will offer a variety of events in conjunction with One Book, One College including panel discussions, film screenings, and book discussions. Students, faculty, and staff are all encouraged to participate in these events!
