2017 FUP Reading Packet: The FUPprint

July 12, 2017

We are five weeks away from FUP!! FUPpies should have been emailed our Reading Packet and should read through it carefully before FUP. Much of FUP's programming involves the use of this packet. The selected articles present a variety of perspectives on race, class, gender, identity, ability status, religion, social justice, oppression, privilege, power structures and what it means to participate in service, activism, and social change. While you shouldn't feel pressured to agree with the articles, we encourage you to think critically about the issues they raise.  This year, a group of especially dedicated leaders revamped the reading packet in order to improve both the readability and contemporary relevance of the articles. We've also added video clips, helpful tips for freshman year and notes to aid you in the reading process. We hope you enjoy it! The FUPprint should serve as a resource that you can reference throughout your time at Harvard!
