J-Term Book Club
Student Diversity and Inclusion Services sponsors a J-Term Book Club on Thursdays each January from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The program is designed to build awareness and understanding of individuals’ lived experience. It allows students, faculty and staff to engage in meaningful conversations on key points from the book in a relaxed and safe environment. The following spring, participants are invited to a private book signing and lunch with the author.
Sign up for the 2018 Book Club will be in December of 2017 so please check back.
