Any individual (faculty/staff/student) has the opportunity to submit a book recommendation for consideration for the first-year reading text choice. All recommendations will be submitted to the Student Success Center and will reviewed by a committee of faculty, staff, and students focused on the 2017 book selection process. All first-year reading recommendations should meet the goals that are set for selection criteria.
The goals of the First-Year Reading Program are as follows:
The committee will review book recommendations and utilize volunteers to read books that seem to meet the above stated goals and program outcomes. Student feedback will be utilized once the committee narrows down the recommendations to the final selection of books being reviewed. The committee will then read all the books under final consideration and a final recommendation of the top book will be submitted for approval.
Book Recommendations for the 2017 selection process have already been collected.
