Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa - CNN Interview
Welcome to our brand new, college-wide COMmon Read. With this shared reading program, we are encouraging the entire COM community to join together to read and discuss a book in common. We hope to foster a greater sense of community through a shared academic and social experience; encourage an exchange of ideas among students, faculty, and staff; increase awareness of academic, cultural, and social issues; and promote various disciplines across campuses.
