Reading and discussing literature are vital activities that expand our ideas and provide insights into a dynamic and diverse world. Each year, the Literature Committee hosts events designed to deepen the Stout community’s awareness of literature and language, from faculty & staff readings to visits by nationally recognized poets and authors.

The Literature Committee also sponsors an annual Reading Across the Campus program featuring an important work of literature, and incorporating related discussions from many disciplines beyond the literary.
