The Community Reading Project is an interdisciplinary endeavor among the GVSU campuses and local communities. It is dedicated to providing students, staff, faculty, administration and the members of our communities with the highest quality engagement of reading and discussing relevant books.
The Community Reading Project will offer participants opportunities to explore the traditions of humane values and the heritage, problems, and perspectives of their own and other cultures. Participants will develop the skills of inquiry, reflection, analysis, critical thinking, dialogue, and creative expression.
The Community Reading Project is characterized by and supports active and engaged learning. It is dedicated to creating diverse and inclusive environments, opportunities and dialogue that promote the development of intellect and creativity through reading. Realizing this vision will result in an enriched and vibrant campus culture and surrounding communities.
On March 27th, 2013, the Community Reading Project will be hosting Sir Ken Robinson, the author of “The Element: How finding your passion changes everything.” Please join us in the Fieldhouse at 7pm.
