The Common Experience serves to facilitate increased interactions among faculty, staff, and students through a focus on common contemporary themes, related readings and academic endeavors. On an annual basis, the Common Experience faculty committee selects a timely and relevant theme and invites participation from across the campus to prepare a series of lectures, seminars, and complementary academic activities by faculty, authors, community and civic leaders for the following academic year. CE lectures and activities extend student learning and faculty-staff-student experiences beyond the classroom. Students will engage in deconstructing and exploring a common subject, treated and examined through multidisciplinary lenses, and learn to value intellectual- and personal-responsibility and apply academic thought towards finding meaningful solutions to real-world problems.
