The DelVal Book Community

This academic year, Delaware Valley College joins hundreds of colleges across the country with the introduction of The DelVal Book Community, a non-curricular common reading program that jumpstarts incoming students' college experience and joins the entire college community in a year-long dialogue devoted to the topics, issues, and controversies surrounding the selected books.  Over the course of the next two semesters, this program will be supplemented by faculty-led forums, roundtables, discussion groups, film and lecture series, and other on-campus events.

Attention Freshmen: In addition to preparing students for a diverse schedule of faculty-led forums, roundtables, discussion groups, film series, lectures, and other campus events, incoming freshmen can also expect any or all of these books to be required reading in their courses during the coming academic year, especially in English 1101, English 1201, and the Skills for College Success course (LA 1020).

The Goals:

  • Introduce incoming students to the expectations of higher education
  • Involve all students, faculty, and staff in a common academic dialogue
  • Promote literacy,life-long learning, communication, and collaboration across multiple disciplines
