Your gift buys textbooks for students
The affordability of higher education is a recognized barrier for many potential and current Lumberjack students. One component of that affordability is required course materials, and textbook prices have increased by 190% since 2006, which exceeds other educational expenses. 56% of current students are first-generation and/or Pell eligible, making support for textbook affordability even more essential. Your gift can help supply students with textbooks without an additional expense.
The Cline Library textbook affordability challenge project is designed to increase access to required course textbooks for students. Your gift can support the library’s acquisition of electronic textbooks that support multiple students across disciplines. This cost-effective approach supports many students with the latest technology and content.
Help purchase textbooks for Cline Library to support NAU student success
Students have a lot to worry about this year. Accessing their textbooks shouldn’t be one of them. Studies show that access to required course materials increases student engagement and overall course grade. Help the Cline Library textbook affordability challenge project purchase multiple-license electronic textbooks for our students. One purchase will support multiple students across a variety of disciplines. A book that might cost an individual $100 could cost the library $1,000, but once the multiple-license is purchased, the electronic textbook could support every student in a class—in some cases upwards of 1,000 students. Providing this type of collective access to essential course materials can be life-changing for many students challenged by funding their course materials.
