From the Vice Chancellor's Shelf

From the Vice Chancellor's Shelf

Created initially as a monthly conversation led by the Vice Chancellor for Student Success on a book that Dr. Leming selected for reading and discussion, the book club has evolved into a podcast to allow for greater participation. One book is selected each spring and fall term for discussion with select faculty, staff, and administrators from across the TBR System. In the summer, a podcast featuring that year's SOAR finalists allows listeners to learn more about the exception faculty, staff, and students who were nominated for statewide recognition.
