COMMON READ PROGRAM

Increase awareness of relevant cultural issues and promote critical thinking skills with the newest UC Press titles. 

OUR MISSION

We believe that scholarship is a powerful tool for fostering a deeper understanding of our world and changing how people think, plan, and govern. The work of addressing society's core challenges--whether they be persistent inequality, a failing education system, or global climate change--can be accelerated when scholarship assumes its role as an agent of engagement and democracy.

To that end, the titles below will provide students with a common intellectual experience to stimulate discussion, create a sense of community, and provide an understanding of their place in today's global society.
