UConn Reads Established Fall, 2011

The University of Connecticut's UConn Reads program has been created to bring together the University community – from students, faculty, and staff to alumni and friends of UConn, as well as citizens of Connecticut – for a far-reaching and engaging dialogue centered on a book suggested by the community.

Susan Herbst, the University of Connecticut's new president, comments on the UConn Reads program in her blog.
