UNCG students, faculty, and staff are invited to make recommendations for First Year Summer Read selections.

If your recommendation does not meet the criteria you won't be able to submit this survey.
Please complete the form below and click "submit." The FYSR book selection team considers the following criteria when selecting the FYSR text for each fall:

o Potential to engage students and spark passionate discussion

o Appeal to a wide range of students; a fit with the UNCG student

o Possibilities for classroom use among various departments, including Learning and Living Learning Communities, Foundations for Learning, and any interested academic unit

o Possibilities for campus programming, particularly hosting an author visit

o Possibilities for community programming, including alumni and Greensboro reading groups

o Richness of themes; interdisciplinary in nature

o Relevance to student life (i.e. coming of age, diversity, relationships, family, self-exploration, identity, etc.)

o Relevance to global or international appeal if possible

o Relevance to service

o Written within the past 4 years

o Available in paperback

o 400 pages or less

The First Year Summer Read selection team will consider this proposal and the criteria set forth during selection.
