Create-Your-Own Book Club

Do you have a book that you’d like to read and discuss with colleagues? This is YOUR chance to host your own book club.

Create Your Own Book Club

The Center for Faculty Excellence will advertise your book club and collect registrations, financially support the purchase of the books, refreshments for meetings, and other costs associated with running the book club, as well as include the group members’ attendance on annual participation letters.

Check back soon for another call for proposals!

Create-Your-Own Book Club Requirements:

  • The book needs to provide a professional development theme that fits your position or the university as a whole with final approval by the CFE.
