The Lobo Reading Experience was created as a common academic reading program at the University of New Mexico (UNM). The program has been created for all students to offer a common reading experience that fosters a sense of community while promoting reading as an entire campus and a city wide effort that promotes literacy.
- To provide a common experience for all university community members to facilitate transition to a new academic year and create connections between classroom and out of class-room experiences.
- To engage discussions between students, faculty, staff, and community members surrounding societal issues, and to share learning aspirations.
- To integrate the book within course curriculums across campus providing faculty with a listing of ideas for faculty on how to incorporate it within their classes.
- Develop a yearlong comprehensive program within campus curricular and co-curricular activities, housing, parent association, new student orientation, and human resources that reaches all student, parents, and staff communities.
- To create the value of reading as a university community.
- To collaborate with the City of Albuquerque Cultural Services to promote literacy and reading as fun within the libraries, youth programs, and family centers.
