In fall semester 2013, the University of Cincinnati introduced a common reading for all first year students. The book being used for all incoming first-year students fall 2013 and 2014 is titled Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do? by Michael Sandel.
The University of Cincinnati common reading provides students an opportunity to read, reflect, discuss, and interact with their peers. By encouraging students to engage in meaningful discussions with others they are able to begin the reflection cycle and better understand why they and others have the opinions they do. This provides a space for all of our students to find commonalities across majors, colleges, and backgrounds.
Students are encouraged to explore the publisher web page for links to media, reviews, and discussions. The University Honors Program has also accumulated resources including an introduction and additional media from the course Mr. Sandel teaches based on his book Justice, which are located below.
