Task Force presents measures to cut classroom materials costs

Because students cite financial struggles as their biggest barrier to academic success, WSU faculty, students, staff, and administrators are working together on solutions to reduce the cost of classroom materials at WSU.

The Course Materials Cost Reduction Presidential Task Force collaborated on a report submitted to then-Interim President Dan Bernardo that will identify challenges and potential solutions for WSU students and faculty tackling the cost of books and other instructional materials. There are many nuances to this issue, but many opportunities exist to reduce costs for our students.
