Support the First-Year Reading Program

Posted by Admin On 4:32:00 PM
When it comes to the First-Year Reading program, its success relies just as much on faculty and staff support as it does on student participation. All members of the campus community are encouraged to join the incoming first-year class by reading the book and participating in the related reading groups, speaker series, and student-led forums held during the academic year.

Events are currently being planned and will be updated throughout the semester on the Center for Academic Enrichment website.

This year’s book, Living With Complexity by Don Norman, is about how bad design complicates all aspects of our lives, while good design can “tame” complexity.

Each year, the First-Year Reading book is selected by a committee comprised of faculty, staff, and students. Incoming freshmen learn about the program and receive their copy of the book over the summer when they attend FASET orientation. They are asked to complete it by the time fall semester classes begin.

The First-Year Reading program is coordinated by Nirmal Trivedi, director of academic transition programs in the Center for Academic Enrichment. Faculty and staff interested in integrating the First-Year Reading text into their classes or coordinating programs around the book should contact Trivedi for a copy.
