BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY IS EXCITED TO CONTINUE THE COMMON READ EXPERIENCE FOR ALL INCOMING FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS.
Students will gain new perspectives on the most important issues of our days, learn how to engage in constructive dialogue and debate, and acclimate to the intellectual life of a premier university. The Common Read also enables students to build connections to the campus community through talks and programming, and participate in activities and events throughout the fall.
This year's book, All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine K. Wilkinson, is a timely and engaging text that takes a solutions-oriented approach to the climate crisis, examining it from multiple perspectives.
For more information, visit the Penguin/Random House website.
Students will receive their printed copy of this book during orientation this summer (First-year students who attend orientation in August will be contacted by the Office of The Dean of Students to receive their book when they arrive on campus).
As you read this book over the summer along with the other members of the Class of 2027, we encourage you to reflect upon these important topics. When you arrive on campus, you will be invited to join the broader University community in discussions and programs related to it in your residential communities, your classes and many other exciting ways.
Visit the Common Read website for more information on what to expect over the summer and beyond!
Students who would like to request accommodations to ensure their equitable access and participation in the Common Read experience should contact the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Office at 607-777-2686. The office is located in the University Union, Room 119.
