One Book One College

The Reedley College One Book/One College project, which began in fall 2015, was initiated by the Student Learning Outcomes Committee as a way to encourage student engagement. This quickly became a joint effort with other College entities such as the Literary Arts/Speakers Series, Student Body Government, English, Library, Honors and Art programs, First Year Experience (FYE), Basic Skills Initiative (BSI), Equity Plan, and the Office of the President.

Many instructors incorporate the One Book into their courses and/or encourage students to participate in a series of free events to encourage college-wide conversation, creativity, and community. Be sure to check here regularly as new events and activities are added regularly.

Why One Book/One College

This shared reading experience encourages Reedley College students, staff, and faculty to read and discuss a common book during each academic year with the goal to engage students in dialogue and events in order to enhance student success. Thoughtful, intellectual engagement takes place among students, faculty, and staff. We encourage the practice of reading and to use this reading experience to communicate and connect beyond the classroom and workplace.

Did you Know?

College and community One Book programs have been established nationwide to promote literacy and to engage all members of a given community in a lively, intellectual conversation based on their shared reading experience.
