Engage in a conversation with Jennine Capó Crucet, the author of this year’s Common Read book, “Make Your Home Among Strangers.”

Capó Crucet’s story invites all of us to think deeply about the kind of campus community we want to create – one defined by the values of diversity and inclusion, equity, empathy, and intellectual growth for all.

A limited amount of free books is available for those faculty registering for the event on a first-come, first-served basis.

This is an event co-sponsored by the Institute for Teaching Excellence and Faculty Development (TEFD) and the Residential Learning Communities Office.


The Campus Center is located in the middle of campus at 1 Campus Center Way. Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
