BUSM Reads

The BUSM Reads Program is designed to provide faculty and staff with the opportunity to review and discuss readings pertaining to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Each year a new book will be selected and collectively read to examine the ways faculty and staff can work to make BUSM more inclusive. ALL faculty, staff and trainees are welcome!
