Research shows that the cost of educational materials can have a significant impact on student success. In a 2018 survey of Florida students, around 20% said they had dropped, withdrawn from, or even failed a course because they couldn’t afford to purchase the textbook. With their affordability work, our Textbook Heroes have shown an outstanding commitment to student success at ISU.

For more information about our Textbook Heroes and their work, please see the Library News  full announcement.
