Common Read

The ACPA18 Common Read provides an opportunity for ACPA members to engage with the convention experience by reading the same book or set of articles as part of an ongoing professional development opportunity.  Prior to ACPA’s annual convention, Common Read participants will convene in a variety of technology facilitated sessions to discuss issues, questions, and themes raised by the text, and their relevance to higher education and student affairs.

The overarching goals of the Common Read are:

  • To contribute to a sense of community through a shared intellectual experience
  • To provide ACPA members with an opportunity to learn from each other through their responses to, and engagement with, a common reading
  • To provide opportunities to discuss and reflect on one’s own positionality and role in social justice work within higher education and student affairs

Please submit your suggestions for the Common Read by Friday, 20 October here.
