Incoming freshman will take part in a Common Read program on Tara Westover’s Educated. The seminar uses the book discussion as a springboard to bring together faculty and learning communities from the Kelley School of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences to explore a number of interrelated questions:  What are the obligations of community and society to children? What is the value of education? What is the role of religion in education and educational access?
