The Common Read Program was designed to provide an opportunity for the entire Brandywine Community to engage in intellectual conversation about a shared text. We encourage you to think of this shared experience as an introduction to your academic life at Penn State Brandywine.
The concept of a year-long campus theme presents opportunity for the Brandywine community to develop a community dialogue around a central idea or question. With both curricular and co-curricular applications, a campus theme supports Brandywine’s goals of developing a common experience among students, fostering a culture of intellectual engagement, creating a diverse community, and supporting communication, collaboration and creativity across campus. Your first introduction to the annual theme is the Common Read.
