Program Overview

The Read & Lead book club was introduced on the HSC campus in March 2008. It is an opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to discuss books focused on leadership or personal insight.

The Three Steps to Participating:

  1. Sign-up! Books will be limited to the first 35 people to sign up in the David L. Boren Student Union, Suite 300. HSC Student Affairs is open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Be sure to sign up early, books often go very quickly. Due to the limited numbers of books, we request no more than two faculty/staff per department sign up.
  2. Enjoy reading!
  3. Join us for a complimentary lunch and book discussion.
