Graceland University shares why they are walking with Planetwalker

Keep those comments coming!

James Uhlenkamp of Graceland University let us know why Dr. John Francis’s Planetwalker was selected for the university’s 2010 Common Reading Program. He says:

This book tells the tale of a man who found his life work in an environmental disaster. In formulating and living his response, Francis displayed the fortitude and dedication to hold to his principles in the face of family and social pressures to conform.

An important goal of an FYE program is to help the students see the the people they wish to become. This book demonstrates that anything is possible, and that unusual decisions and visions, if pursued with perseverance, can have a positive impact on the world and society around us.

Will Planetwalker work for your program? What themes are important to your university? What do you hope your students will glean from their common read?

Share your thoughts with us and we will help you share them with others!
