During the Fall 2022 semester, eleven Oberlin Group institutions in association with the Open and Equitable Access to Scholarship Working Group conducted a student textbook survey adapted from the 2016 Florida Virtual Campus survey and the 2019 Gettysburg College survey. The goal of the project was to gain a better understanding of how the costs of course materials impact our own students. This poster highlights some of those results as well as action steps faculty members can take to better support students.
This study was coordinated by the Oberlin Group - Open and Equitable Working Group.
