Dear Campus Community,
The Office of Inclusive Excellence, UCI Libraries, and Division of Student Affairs invite all UCI students, faculty and staff to participate in the UCI Great Big Read, a project aimed at fostering engagement and social solidarity during a time when practicing physical distancing. The books will focus on themes of inclusion and connection as ways to enhance openness to diverse perspectives.
As a first step, UCI members are asked to vote on a reading list for the UCI Great Big Read by Wednesday, May 6 at: https://uciadvance.wufoo.com/forms/m1fx8x7r0famk7q/.
Links to the most popular titles selected will be provided for free or nearly free to registered readers at their UCI emails. The UCI Great Big Read offers several ways that members of the campus and medical center can engage, including independently reading books from the list, participating in upcoming discussion forums and volunteering for selection readings in forthcoming programs.
