Each year, students, faculty, staff, and administrators select and read a common book as part of Chaffey's One Book/One College program. Many instructors incorporate the College Book into their courses, and the One Book/One College committee holds a series of free events to encourage college-wide conversation, creativity, and community. Past events have included film screenings, food tastings, visiting speakers, faculty lectures, family programming, marathon book readings, essay contests, dialogues, live performances, blogs, art exhibitions, forays into the local community, and much, much more.
Programming is supported by employee contributions as well as by the Vice President of Instruction & Student Services, the School of Language Arts, and the Chaffey Bookstore. Collaborations with on- and off-campus partners are created with groups such as Professional Development, Ethics Across the Curriculum, the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art, student clubs, local bookstores and other organizations and businesses.
