​Steering Committee

To oversee and coordinate the Freshman Common Reading Program (FCRP), in support of program objectives:

  • To strengthen the academic community and create opportunities for intellectual engagement and depth in learning through carefully selected common readings that pose multiple or differing perspectives and questions, followed by theme-oriented academic and co-curricular activities throughout the year;
  • To establish an intellectually stimulating environment that is both informal and structured, setting a tone for intellectual engagement among our new students;
  • To strengthen the academic focus in the New Student Orientation program; and
  • To assist in planning related to the New Student Orientation program.

 

This committee is  responsible for ensuring the rollout of the program, and for its overall coordination. The Implementation Committee also is charged with evaluating the program, and with recommending an administrative structure and considering designated individuals or offices with primary responsibility for the program in future years.  Further, the committee should explore potential internal and external funding possibilities to ensure sustained and continued growth of the program.
