Hawkeye Reads

A good story has the power to be transformational. A good story cuts across boundaries and sparks meaningful discussion.

Hawkeye Reads is a campus-wide program that seeks to support the College’s Institutional Outcomes and increase literacy. It promotes dialogue among students, faculty, and staff across the campus. To put it simply, Hawkeye Reads uses reading to build community.

The 2022–2023 Hawkeye Reads book selection is Disability Visibility: First Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century.
