Course Transformation Program

The competitive Course Transformation Program seeks to lower the cost of post-secondary education for students and contribute to their retention, progression, and graduation. Project funds support faculty in replacing their existing textbook and/or course materials in a specific course(s) with no cost, open materials. Awards will be available for activity impacting single courses, departments, and multiple campuses. We invite proposals in accordance with the CFP.
