Affordable Textbook Program

2020 Affordable Textbook Initiative

In Fall 2020, the Affordable Textbook Initiative saved 571 students an estimated $69,803 (based on the average cost of the previously assigned textbook). 

The Affordable Textbook Initiative 2020, funded through generous support from WKU Sisterhood, awarded eight $1,500 grants to faculty who replaced a traditional textbook with a free or low-cost alternative. WKU Libraries and CITL offered assistance to all grant recipients in identifying textbook alternatives and updating syllabi and assignments. 

Congratulations to our 2020 Affordable Textbook Initiative participants!
