Each year, one book is selected for incoming freshmen to read prior to their arrival in the fall. This "Writer as Witness" (WaW) program is an integral part of the college writing curriculum.  The author is invited to campus to address the university community.
 

The 2017 Annual colloquium features We Gon’ Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation by Jeff Chang.

Chang will present at the Bender Arena
Wednesday, Sept. 6, 8:00 p.m.
