Common Book Project

About the Program

Winthrop University's Common Book Project does more than provide a common intellectual experience for our first-year students.   One of many programs designed to support student success during the transition to college life, Winthrop's Common Book also intentionally connects to our global learning and global awareness commitment.  Integrated into a course required for all students earning a Winthrop degree, HMXP:  The Human Experience, the selected book exposes students to perspectives that are different from their own, reinforcing both the course's global content and one of Winthrop's four University Level Competencies.    

Incoming freshmen receive the book at summer orientation and can begin reading it a few months prior to their arrival on campus.   They will discuss the book in more depth when they take the Human Experience course and also attend Common Book global cultural events provided throughout both semesters of their first year on campus.
