Affordable Course Content Awards Program
The Affordable Course Content Awards Program is a partnership of the VCU Libraries, the Office of the Provost, the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence and the ALT Lab. This program supports faculty adoption and creation of free, low-cost, or open alternatives to expensive textbooks. Academic Technologies, Online @ VCU, Student Accessibility and Educational Opportunity, and the VCU Bookstore also serve as resources for award recipients.
