How to Participate

First-year students entering SJSU in the fall semester receive a free copy of the Campus Reading book selection during summer orientation. New first-time freshmen who need a copy in an alternate format may contact SJSU's Accessible Education Center at (408) 924-6000. The Campus Reading book is a welcome gift from SJSU President Mary Papazian. Thank you, President Papazian!

Staff and faculty are also encouraged to participate in the Campus Reading Program by reading the book, integrating the campus reading book into their courses and co-curricular activities, and attending related programming on campus. Books are available for purchase at SJSU's Spartan Bookstore and online. Many local libraries carry the books as well. 

The book selection committee is comprised of faculty and staff across campus who share a love of reading. This voluntary group meets during the academic year and is always open to new members. If you would like to join us, please email the committee.
