Common Read Program

The University has chosen Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide  by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn as the book for its Common Read/Common World program to take place during the 2013-2014 academic year. Half the Sky addresses the problems caused by the inequality and oppression of women in the developing world.

The University Library, in support of this program, has purchased ten copies of the book and placed them on 7 Day Library Reserve, meaning they can be checked out for a week. These books can be found at the library's Circulation desk and have the following call number: HQ 1236.5 .D44 K74 2010.

In addition, the library has also purchased eight copies of the dvd, Half the Sky. These are currently In Process but will be placed in the Instructional Media Center on the First Floor North.
