KPC’s Dr. Alison Gardell wins Affordable Course Materials Award
Alison GardellKeeping the cost of education affordable to UAA students is a core value of the university. Since textbooks and course materials can be expensive, the UAA/APU Consortium Library with its tradition of providing open access to information is pleased to sponsor the Affordable Course Materials Award. Since the high cost of education can be a barrier to student success, the use of affordable course materials is likely to improve the rate of student retention and degree completion at UAA.

During the spring semester, the Faculty Senate Library Advisory Committee solicited nominations and after the committee’s review selected 17 award winners. Their work demonstrated a sustained commitment to lowering the cost of class materials for their students. As a group, the award winners representing a variety of disciplines reduced the cost of education to UAA students over a single semester by a total of $150,609.

Check out the other award winners. 

Congratulations Dr. Gardell!
