About One Book, One Richmond

One Book, One Richmond is a campus-wide effort that encourages students, faculty, staff, and members of the Richmond community to read and discuss a selected book on a social justice issue. Now housed in the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement, the effort is led by a committee of students, faculty, and staff representing all five academic schools as well as departments across campus. We strive to encourage active participation in a vibrant intellectual community.

Events and programs on various themes found in the selected text are offered throughout the academic year and are open to all members of the UR community unless otherwise noted.

Goals of the program are to:

  • Provide opportunities for faculty, staff, students, and members of the greater Richmond communtiy to explore and discuss relevant social justice issues
  • Increase the level of awareness among participants about social inequality
  • Encourage participants to use the knowledge they gain to work personally and professionally for positive social change
