A year of conversation around a shared book


Building community, enriching curriculum, and engaging research through the shared reading of an important book—this is what Common Reading at UO is about.

Common Reading at UO began in 2009 as an initiative of the Clark Honors College. In 2014, it expanded to include all first-year students. Common Reading is coordinated by the Division of Undergraduate Studies, with support from the Office of the President, the Division of Student Life, and the Division of Equity and Inclusion.
