Multicultural Club Book Discussion Group

The Multicultural Club Book Discussion Group provides a platform for students  to engage in discussion activities that will enable you to share thoughts, make friends, and learn teamwork skills. The Book Club participants are assigned an inspiring book to read (or selected chapters, or speeches) and then discuss its meanings with your peers and offer your insights. The club will meet once every 3-4 weeks during the semester in the Learning Common.
