Common Reading Experience


Committee Member Quote:

“We hope to see this program grow university-wide. This will allow NIU’s students, faculty, and staff to participant in an open community where everyone’s beliefs are able to be expressed in a safe environment.”

Peer Instructor who has used the CRE in their UNIV 101/201 class:

“I feel that students used the time we set aside in class for the Common Reading Experience to connect with each other. Class discussion and activities about the book served as bonding experiences. I think increasing the opportunities to take part in a common reading experience outside the classroom would further develop this bond.”
