This fall, the MIT Libraries is launching MIT Reads, an Institute-wide program that aims to build community and foster understanding through a series of shared reading and discussion events. This new initiative invites the entire MIT community — students, faculty, staff, and affiliates — to read selected titles and join open discussions.
For the 2016-17 academic year, MIT Reads will explore the theme of diversity and inclusion. Staff from the Libraries will partner with cultural and identity-based groups on campus throughout the year to select the reading and plan discussion events. A grant from MIT’s Committee on Race and Diversity is supporting the program. Read more at MIT News.
