What is Life of the Mind?

What is Life of the Mind? Life of the Mind is UT’S common-reader program and serves as a student’s first assignment at the University of Tennessee. Once you arrive on campus, the engaging discussions begin. Through Life of the Mind, students have the opportunity to use critical thinking skills to analyze the selected work and present opinions on the piece, attend an exciting large-scale event where the author will discuss the chosen book, and have the opportunity to meet the author at a book-signing event.
