Faculty & Staff Resources

Thank you for your interest in this TCU tradition.

The 2018 Common Reading will begin on Friday, August 17 at 9:00 am and will last approximately 90 minutes. Students will attend the Common Reading discussion with their Frogs First group as part of their Frogs First schedule.  Faculty and staff facilitators will lead a discussion for one group of approximately 20 incoming students. If you agree to participate, we will provide you with one copy of the book and a brief study guide, with additional (optional) planning sessions provided for those interested.

The Common Reading program is an outstanding and rewarding opportunity for faculty and staff members to help introduce students to academic life early in their TCU careers, and to welcome them into the Horned Frog community. Those interested in facilitating should complete the form at the bottom of the page.

We hope you will participate in this valuable experience by serving as a discussion facilitator. Please note that space is limited for this program, and we may not be able to accommodate all requests to volunteer.

Please contact commonreading@tcu.edu if you have any questions or concerns, or would like more information about the Common Reading program at TCU.

Suggestions for the Future

The committee would love your suggestions for future Common Reading titles.  Please submit your recommendation and explanation as to why it should be considered to commonreading@tcu.edu.  The TCU Common Reading Committee meets in early fall to begin the process of title selection for the following summer.
