OER Grants for Faculty

Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) promote the use of textbooks and other materials for free or at a minimal charge. By collaborating to create high-quality shared texts, the academic community can dramatically lower the cost of textbooks and class materials for the students they teach.

To encourage faculty to move from high cost textbooks to open educational resources (OER), the University Libraries and the Global Campus offer incentives to faculty of $3000 to adopt OER open access course materials or $7500 to create OER open access course materials.  Read more about the program and learn how to apply...
