Marymount California University Library

The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder

Marymount's One Campus One Book

One Campus, One Book is a Marymount Library tradition designed to provide a campus-wide learning opportunity through literature, to encourage a common reading experience and to develop a sense of community at Marymount California University.

Each year, the Marymount Library solicits faculty recommendations for book titles that contain themes that are teachable from a variety of disciplines and perspectives, and integrate with the campus strategic goals or student learning outcomes.  Faculty and staff are encouraged to incorporate the book and related campus events into their curriculum.  Campus departments also strive to integrate programming events that tie into the book’s themes.
