Experience the Book
“By participating in the program, you will become a part of the dialogue and develop numerous connections among your fellow classmates, faculty, alumni and other members of the USF Community while learning about relevant issues related to the world. You will study certain issues in coursework in both the University Experience classes and First Year Composition Program. During Week Of Welcome (WOW!) during September 22-28, special events will be held in residence halls, the Marshall Student Center, and other places on campus. These include movies in the Oval Theatre, a TEDxUSF Talk, and a Family Weekend Service Project centered on issues from the common reading.” - Dean Sullins, Undergraduate Studies
University Experience Curriculum
The “One Book – Global Connections” common reading experience is supported in the University Experience (UE) course through guided discussions and assignments that connect learning opportunities in and out of the classroom. These curriculum initiatives are intended to complement other courses that are participating in the common reading experience. UE students will attend campus events designed to expand the scope of the book to global application. Through critical thinking and exploration of personal values, students will gain a broader understanding of the ethical issues presented in this book and the associated implications for the global community.
The CRE Curriculum includes book integrations for at least two main course groups: FYC classes (ENC 1101 and 1102) and University Experience classes (SLS 1101).
