2017 Summer Reading Assignment

We are pleased to announce that we have selected Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates for Wagner College's Class of 2021 Common Summer Read!

Colleges and universities around the country engage their students through a common summer reading and we believe this text is an amazingly accessible piece of work that will allow us to collectively engage the entire campus community in conversations around issues of equity and justice. There will be a series of events and activities to include: campus wide panels, lectures, discussions, performative experiences, and service learning as vehicles to underscore the themes addressed in Between the World and Me.
