A brief description of the themed semester, year, or first-year experience:

Our institutional QEP (Quality Enhancement Program) is designed to increase literacy, and particularly college-level reading.

The three books that we are reading this semester (Spring 2013) deal with questions of social justice and medical ethics. The titles are:

Rebecca Skloot - The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
Dave Eggers - Zeitoun
Dennis Johnson - Train Dreams
