Fall Faculty Book Club
During the fall semester CAT sponsors a book club for Xavier faculty. We gather three times to discuss what we've read. Often our discussions inform other initiatives. For example, the 2011-2012 FaCTS theme on self-authorship was inspired in part by the 2010 reading of The Heart of Higher Education.
