The 2015 One Campus, One Book committee would like to thank all who submitted a book for One Campus, One Book. After reviewing many terrific nominations, 'What Makes a Hero? The Surprising Science of Selflessness' by Elizabeth Svoboda, was chosen. For more information on the novel, please visit Elizabeth Sovobda's blog. Also, use #1C1B2015 to spread the word!
By bringing to campus an author whose book will be included in first-year composition courses, this program will engage students with a text that addresses a contemporary social issue, encourage them to extend critical and rhetorical analysis to their lives beyond the classroom, and help them synthesize what may seem like disparate academic subjects, creating an interdisciplinary spirit of curiosity on campus. Pleiades, a journal of new writing, is a great resource to learn more about various subjects as well as find book reviews.
If you would like to submit a book to be considered for next year, please click the “Nominate a Book” button at the bottom of the page on our website. Please fill out the form and submit by November 20th, 2015.
