Adopt-a-Free Textbook Faculty Grants Now Open

Applications are now being accepted for Adopt-a-Free-Textbook Grants, offered by the UTSA Libraries. The grant is open to tenure and non-tenure track faculty, and offers funds to support faculty professional development and teaching.

A workshop featuring UTSA faculty that have adopted OER and David Harris, Editor-in-Chief at OpenStax will be hosted on Monday, March 4, in the JPL Assembly Room, 4.04.22.
