The Common Read
In Fall 2022, first-year students enrolled in Transition to Kean (GE 1000) and other courses will engage with the Common Read text, All Boys Aren't Blue by George M. Johnson. The purpose of the Common Read is to bring students together around a given text to discuss relevant and timely topics, to promote interdisciplinary discourse, and to create a shared intellectual experience for students in their first semester at Kean.
The Common Read Keynote Address
The College of Liberal Arts, the School of General Studies, the Human Rights Institute and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are excited to welcome George M. Johnson, author of this year’s Common Read, All Boys Aren't Blue, to campus on Tuesday, October 11, 2022 for a reading and conversation in Wilkins Theatre.
