​Each year at Dallas College, students, faculty and staff come together to read a selected book through the Common Book program. Conversations and activities related to the book's themes build a sense of community across each campus.

Activities includes film screenings, lectures, workshops, author Q&As and contests. Additionally, instructors may incorporate the book into their lesson plans and assignments. Previous Common Book selections have included "The Martian," by Andy Weir, "March: Book One," by John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, and "It Happened on the Way to War: A Marine's Path to Peace," by Rye Barcott.
