Policy Title: The Open Alternative Textbook Initiative - Go to the policy
Author(s): Dr. Andy Bennett, Dr. Brian Lindshield, Beth Turtle

Description: "The high cost of commercial print textbooks is a major concern for both students and their parents.

Through the initiative, faculty can receive a stipend up to $5,000 to develop or adopt an alternate to a traditional textbook."

Policy Comments:
