Textbook Affordability: Student Perspectives and Advocacy

By | January 10, 2018

The high cost of textbooks is a major obstacle for college students pursuing their educational goals. Students have to make impossible choices – between textbooks and food, between expensive materials and poor grades – while the publishing market generates huge profits at students’ expense.

Oregon’s colleges have made progress on lowering the cost of course materials, thanks in part to strong advocacy from student groups. In this webinar, some of our student activists will talk about strategies that they have pursued to promote affordable textbooks on their campuses. Other student leaders will come away with new ideas they can use to advocate for lowering costs at their own schools.

This webinar takes place at 12pm Pacific time, March 1, 2018. The session will be recorded and captioned to share later.
