USD Just Read!

Encouraging Literacy and Deep Dialogue on Social Themes

USD Just Read logo

Each year, the USD community selects a USD Just Read! Book. The Just Read! Program encourages literacy and deep dialogue on social themes presented through outstanding literature. The CEE organizes Just Read! programming, which is sponsored and created in concert with many collaborators across campus. Faculty are encouraged to use the book in their classes and promote Just Read! events to their students. Programming often includes book discussions, interdisciplinary panels, related films, and keynote speakers.  Overall, the program promotes active learning and reading not only within the USD community but within the San Diego community at large.

Please contact us if you are interested in possible programming, course and syllabus integration, or any other collaborative projects for next year.
