As part of the Freshman La Verne Experience, all freshmen will participate in a common reading program in their FLEX Learning Community to help integrate into the broader community of learners at the University of La Verne. The One Book, One University program promotes reading and the discussion of diverse perspectives as a common intellectual experience, teaches writing as a way of learning through reflection, and encourages civic communication while actively engaged in the world. In particular, the One Book, One University Program integrates La Verne’s four core values into student learning:
- A values orientation that encourages students to reflect upon personal, professional, and societal values;
- A respect for diverse communities and the biodiversity of the planet;
- Active lifelong learning;
- Engaged community service.
This year’s selection is The Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders. Mr. Sanders will visit campus for a lecture in fall semester, October 7, 2015, 12:00 PM (Students), 7:00 PM (General Public). Location: Morgan Auditorium.
