Book Cover for The Best We Could DoThe 2018 UChicago Common Book is:
Thi Bui’s The Best We Could Do.

As part of the University of Chicago’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, the UChicago Common Book Initiative strives to enhance campus climate and build community through a shared experience, bringing together undergraduate students, graduate/professional students, faculty, staff, alumni and local community members to read the same book and engage in dialogues across campus. Such experiences foster full participation of community members and encourage understanding diverse perspectives and experiences within UChicago.

From the Center for Identity + Inclusion.
