Common Book Project
About the Program
Winthrop University's Common Book Project provides a common intellectual experience for our vibrant learning community. One of many programs designed to support student success during the transition to college life, Winthrop's common book has been associated in research with important social and academic outcomes.
In varying ways each year, the common book also helps us explore our Core Commitments. Incoming freshmen receive the book at orientation and read it during the summer. Many others -- faculty, staff, alumni, upper-level students, and local book clubs -- join in the experience.
