The Respect Campaign

The Respect Campaign works to unite Yavapai College students, faculty, staff, and administration to actively work together within curricular and co-curricular venues to promote open dialogue, while addressing equality, cultural intelligence, multiculturalism, and social justice on both a local and national level. Awareness and respect are emphasized and modeled as core values necessary to work and live in democratic civil society.

Riders Read

YC’s Riders Read for academic year 21-22 is Educated by Tara Westover

The entire Yavapai College community is encouraged to read Educated, a thoughtful and heartfelt exploration of how we are made by our experiences and how we can reinvent ourselves when we need to.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to pick up the book; if you’d like a copy, please email Mandi Lopez at mandi.lopez@yc.edu.

The Literary Southwest and Riders Read welcomed last year's common read author Tommy Orange for a special live virtual event on February 5, 2021 at 7pm. You can watch that event recording here.

If you'd like to incorporate the common read into your class, club, program or department, or are interested in creating an event yourself, please contact Sukey Waldenberger at suzanne.waldenberger@yc.edu
