Tisch Library Affordable Course Materials Awards

Tisch Library provides financial support for faculty and instructors in the Schools of Arts, Sciences & Engineering who would like to reduce costs for their students by identifying no-cost course materials to incorporate into their syllabus. 

The program encourages cost savings for students and increased use of no-cost course materials and open educational resources (OER, i.e. those freely available to all audiences and licensed under a Creative Commons license). It aims to create more equitable access to learning and enable inclusion of diverse perspectives and experiences that may be absent from existing textbooks or literature. 

Note that instructors may request support from Tisch in a syllabus affordability review or DEIJ review even if you're not applying for an Affordable Course Materials award. Please get in touch with us.
