LU Reads for Change

LU Reads for Change Logo

LU Reads for Change is a campus initiative to intellectually engage students, faculty, and staff in discourse related to issues of anti-racism, diversity, inclusion, access, and equity through a common read.   

The program is designed to expose participants to global, intercultural perspectives and to foster a sense of community at Lamar University where marginalized students, faculty, and staff are heard, valued, and supported. 

LU Reads for Change is set to officially launch in Fall 2022 with the book selection Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson.

"The true measure of our character is how we treat the poor, the disfavored, the accused, the incarcerated, and the condemned."
