I.D.E.A. (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Awareness) Book Club: Home

I.D.E.A. Book Club

The I.D.E.A. (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Awareness) Book Club is co-sponsored by the Clemson University Office of Inclusion and Equity, Clemson TIGERS Advance, and Clemson University Libraries to read and discuss books that expand our awareness of equity and diversity in the world around us.

The group will meet every other week starting on Wednesday, September 16, from 11:30 - 1:00 via Zoom to discuss a few chapters of the book The Empowered University: Shared Leadership, Culture Change, and Academic Success by Freeman A. Hrabowski. Thanks to the generosity of Clemson TIGERS Advance and the Clemson University Office of Inclusion and Equity, we were able to offer a free copy of the book to the first 16 people to RSVP and commit to attending at least two of the four sessions. All 16 copies have been claimed. The book is available as an eBook through Clemson University Libraries here. You can also purchase a copy through IndieBound, Amazon, or Johns Hopkins University Press.
