Explore More with Book-in-Common
First year students are expected to attend the six Signature CAPS Events held during Welcome Week, which includes Explore More with Book-in-Common. These small group discussions focus on the Book-in-Common and are facilitated by faculty and staff members. Last year over 800 new students came to book discussions, so we are expecting a large crowd again this August. To ensure all participants engage in and enjoy these discussions, we need at least *50 group leaders!*
This event will be held on Friday, August 22nd from 1:00 - 3:00 PM, though we ask you to attend the brief pre-program overview starting at 12:30 PM. We will begin dismissing students into groups at approximately 1:15, so discussions will likely get started between 1:30 and 1:45, depending on when your group is dismissed. All groups will wrap up at 2:45 for students to be dismissed to the next event. Group leaders will be provided a comprehensive facilitation guide, copy of the book, and additional preparation at the pre-program overview. If you would like to volunteer to lead a small group discussion of our Book-in-Common, This I Believe, please fill out the form below. Thank you!
Thank you for volunteering! We will contact you with further information in the coming weeks.
