Faculty textbook initiative launched

Provost updates, Faculty

Author: Office of the Provost

A new initiative sponsored by VCU Libraries, the Office of the Provost, the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence and the ALT Lab seeks to help cut costs for students by encouraging VCU faculty members to adopt or create free or low-cost alternatives to expensive textbooks and course materials. The textbook initiative incentivizes faculty members to adopt existing low-cost or free course content by offering monetary awards.
