Tri-C’s Common Reading program builds community and fosters intellectual engagement by drawing faculty and students together in discussion of a common text. The program also creates venues for interdisciplinary learning, as students explore the common text through different lenses both in and out of the classroom. All Tri-C campuses lead co-curricular activities throughout the academic year. During the 2023-2024 academic year, Half American: The Epic Story of African Americans Fighting World War II at Home and Abroad by Matthew F. Delmont served as the Common Read.
