Reading Across the Campus and Community

Reading Across the Campus and Community (RACC) is a program sponsored by the department since 2003 to encourage students, faculty, and the community to read, discuss, and share ideas on historical events and developments as documented by writers and scholars and their implications for contemporary society.

The objectives of RACC are:

  • To encourage reading among students, faculty, and the community
  • To develop reading and comprehension skills
  • To prepare students to become lifelong independent learners
  • To provide a forum for the exchange of ideas across disciplines
