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 In a 2018 survey of Florida students, around 20% said they had dropped, withdrawn from, or even failed a course because they couldn’t afford to purchase the textbook.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.
