Affordable Textbook Program

2021 Affordable Textbook Initiative

The Affordable Textbook Initiative 2021, funded through generous support from the Kelly M. Burch Institute for Transformative Practices in Higher Education, the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, and WKU Libraries, awarded nine $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.
