FIU joins the state-wide effort to improve education access and affordability through innovative approaches reducing the costs of textbook and instructional materials. Centered around student success, we recognize that this is a collective responsibility shared by many members of the university community. We thank individual faculty, administrators, the Textbook Affordability Task Force, Barnes & Noble, the FIU Libraries, FIU Online, the Office of Business Services and others for their diligent efforts.
