Affordable Learning Initiative

To ease the financial burden on SSU students challenged by the rising cost of education, the Affordable Learning Initiative (ALI) encourages the adoption of alternatives to pricey commercially published textbooks. SSU joins universities across the country in promoting the discovery and selection of high quality, low-or no-cost instructional resources.

Faculty and Student Stories

Ben Ford - Mathematics and Faculty Senate Chair

Faculty members are enthusiastic about finding ways to reduce their students' costs for instructional materials, especially as other costs for students keep rising. We hope that, through the Affordable Learning Initiative, we can work with students and others to find the best resources at the best prices.
